BUG

Last night went to the Playhouse to see Adam Buxton present BUG.  This is a show he's involved with that currently has a bi-monthly slot at the BFI Southbank in London, giving big-screen exposure to the latest awe-inspiring work in music videos, anything that dazzles from big name directors to low-budget and zero-budget efforts, and generally celebrating the more extreme and experimental work being done in the field of music promos.

We're lucky enough to have Adam Buxton living in Norfolk, which means we're now getting a semi-regular dose of the show at Norwich's Playhouse too, and my friends Becky and Dan took me last night (after swiping my tickets when I double booked myself last time it was on).  It was an absolutely brilliant night.  Buxton's hosting injects a healthy stream of comedy into the event, including some of his own video work (last night he played us the video clip he's got on his website that's his reaction to the vigourously critical net response his new sitcom The Persuasionists has recieved) and some of the choice Youtube comments the featured videos have received.  Artists featured last night included Shynola's video for Coldplay's 'Strawberry Swing', Fluorescent Hill's 'Spacious Thoughts' video for N.A.S.A. and the video for Grizzly Bear's 'Ready, Able',directed by Allison Schulnik.

Some of the promos appealed more than others, naturally, but as a night out it was such a different exeperience to a gig, or a stand up show, and such an informative and interesting one, that I would definitely encourage people in (or visiting) London to check out the BUG website and see when it's next on.  I'm certainly getting tickets for the next Norwich show.

**Edit**

I'm Youtubing the ones I most enjoyed last night, and adding them to my stash.  I know plugging your own Fubar shit is vaguely distasteful, but...
