FOAVOD: Throw Me The Statue - "Conquering Kids" live in the Paste studio

So I've been waiting months for this video to show up.

TMTS played live at Paste when I was an intern, and it definitely turned me on to the band, who have become one of my recent favorites. (Pick up Moonbeams if you haven't yet.) The newest edition of Paste Vision (the mag's occasional video podcast) finally includes part of that live performance....months and months later. Strangely enough, the actual studio performance isn't what you see here. What we get instead is the band warming up in the stairwell at the back of the building. I think the footage from the studio didn't turn out because there were simply too many people in that small room, and because it was the a/v crew's first experience with a new box of wireless mics...don't think it was much of a success. Certainly was entertaining to witness, though.

After they played for us, we went and saw them at the Unicorn. You know, with audible vocals.

If the studio bit isn't worth watching, though, this certainly is! Check out Paste Vision 5; the Throw Me The Statue bit's right in the middle. You can't miss it.

(Cough, read Paste:Local, cough.)
