The second installment of our video series continues to chronicle a group of friends in New York City. Once again, our protagonists count on the protection offered by Incase products as they use the video feature of the iPhone 3GS to document their journey from Williamsburg to the Lower East Side across the Brooklyn Bridge.
The video features the songs “Devil’s Trident (The Big Pink Specialization Reality)” and “Lights Go Down” by Telepathe from their album Dance Mother. And with that, we present Experiment No. 2: Moped Ride. Look for the final short on 3/22.

We teamed up with film collective Ghost Robot to create a series of three video shorts filmed in and around New York City. Centered around a group of friends whose leisurely pursuits involve creative experiments with the iPhone 3GS, the buoyant bunch relies on the protection of Incase products to give them the freedom to push the limits of iPhone video experimentation.
Experimental noise pop group Telepathe provides the soundtrack for the segments and makes a cameo in the final video of the series. Featured here is the song “Can’t Stand It” from their album Dance Mother.
Without further ado, we present to you Experiment No. 1: Rocket Launch. Be on the lookout for the second short dropping 3/15.

Soooooooooo…. about a month ago we sponsored FYF Fest Production’s CMJ showcase at Cake Shop in New York. Crystal Antlers. Male Bonding. Let’s Wrestle. Ninjasonik. As part of our sweet coverage of the showcase, we also sponsored Michael Reich’s (a/k/a Videothing.com) documentation of the night.
Per usual, Reich captured all the fearsome fun. From the footage you’ll gather it was a real sweat lodge. Go to videothing to see his frequent video coverage of underground shows happening all over the US.
We could say so much about Vice’s 15th anniversary bash. Happy to report a fair amount of noteworthy shenaniganery went down with the hard workin’ Mr. Dank & Christopher Roberts and their sundry cohorts. Exhilarating and fun? Yes and yes. Exhausting and idiotic? Yes and definitely. Which is exactly the way Vice likes a rollick to roll. This was easily the most raging Halloween/Birthday lurk in the NYC area. By far and away.
We could tell you about the mega square-foot warehouse space and its two floors oozing in mystery liquids; we could describe the inventive costumes, the sketchy lighting (i.e. none), the head crushing sound system, and the beautifully built (but quickly useless) booze-soaked mini-ramp.
We could gush endlessly about The Jesus Lizard’s genuinely mind-blowing performance. We could tell you about the overzealous security guards nearly shutting down the Bad Brains’ set. THE BAD BRAINS! We could say so much. But the Flickr photos show it all so much better.
Costumed party-goers waited an average of two hours just to get into the party. On a cold, drizzly night! Why? It was an honest to God blowout. Right after this we packed up and headed to Austin, Texas for the 4th Annual Fun Fun Fun Fest. It’s been a real whirlwind two weeks here at Incase Music & Events. Happy Boo(!)rthday Vice!
If you’ve ever been to NYC’s CMJ Music Marathon, then you know how frenzied it can be. New York’s fall weather is notoriously unpredictable. If it isn’t raining or freezing then its a heat wave. Nevertheless, come slush or hot garbage, the devoted will do whatever it takes to see their favorite bands play exceedingly short sweaty sets. As the unofficial indie rock right of passage, everybody plays CMJ at least once.
This year we decided to partner up with our friends at FYFFest Productions on their showcase at Cake Shop. Of late, they’ve been on a role with great music & charity events around the country. According to Sean Carlson, FYF’s resident Willy Wonka, “It was at capacity [400 people!] the entire night, from 12 midnight til 4AM. It was GREAT!” And with that, we say enjoy the photos. See you next year!
