Hey Dude

August 30, 2007

Be sure to check here in the near future for photos and video of last weekend’s Lot Festival. Bill Streeter of Lo-Fi St. Louis will also be posting a bunch of video from the event, since he (and others) did a great job helping film it.

In the meantime, Matt at Highway 61 Revised took some video of 7 Shot Screamer’s take on OutKast’s classic “Hey Ya!” (Lo-Fi can’t post it due to copyright rules):
