Video of the Day: Sonny and the Sunsets Live on an Airplane

Categories: Video

Sonny and the Sunsets - Heart of Sadness from Yours Truly on Vimeo.

We're pretty damn excited about Sonny's Smith's "100 Records" project, where the jack-of-all-arts-trades created fictional bands and had real artists create the album covers (and real local acts help him record the songs). To get the bigger story on this project, which opens April 9 at Gallery 16, you can check out Marc Hawthorne's writeup this issue.

And to get a sense of Sonny as a songwriter, you can check out this video of an impromptu performance captured by local video wizzes Yours Truly. Because SXSW is such a clusterfuck of musicians and music industry types, it's typical that you'll have an entire airplane packed with people headed to the Austin shindig. As this clip shows, though, that can spark something surprisingly cool, such an an on-the-spot rendition of Sonny's "Heart of Sadness" on the airplane.
