The Felice Brothers’ eerie, self-directed clip for “Fire at the Pageant,” from the band’s recent release Celebration, Flordia, finds the country-folk rockers channeling the Southern mischief of True Blood’s opening credits. The video opens with an ominous monologue suggesting dire things to come, followed by a series of spontaneous – and sometimes unfortunate – circumstances. Supplemented by the grainy images, the scenes provide a mystical, almost haunting feeling that’s intensifed by a shot of bassist Christmas rolling around in the trunk of a car, wearing a dress.
Some great friends in this shot.
