  • Hind Legs and Special Costello ready themselves for tour with a hometown kick off on Valentine's Day

On a Saturday in the middle of an icy January, Hind Legs---a two- or sometimes three-piece garage band---shot its first music video.

Halloway Jones, the lead singer and guitarist, hopes the video will give the group momentum as they head out on tour in a few weeks.

"Music videos spread, they get viral real fast," she says, sitting on a couch in her living room. She's holding on to an old, worn-out classical guitar, the kind with the nylon strings. "Someone might see the video, approach us and say, 'Let's make an album together.'"

Adrian Bruhm says that these days bands usually have to fork out a lot of cash for recording and do it on their own. After that, a band is considered lucky if a label picks up the album and distributes it. Hind Legs are hoping for that kind of luck.

Bruhm hosts $Rockin for Dollar$ every week at Reflections and was there for the video shoot, which took place in Jones' apartment.

Her living room---before the shoot--- was as clean as her white-shirted guests. By the end, the room and extras were covered in rainbow splatters of paint.

Drummer Ben Deinstadt says that the whole experience was extremely satisfying, especially the paint-slinging. The raucous video shoot mirrored Hind Legs' fun and scrappy sound.

Jones and Deinstadt are releasing their video at Gus' Pub on Valentine's Day, before heading out on their eastern Canada tour. With them they are taking Jeremy Costello and Nick Dourado, the glam-rock duo known as Special Costello.

About her nearing tour, Jones says, "It's exhausting and I hate it, but there is nothing more fun."
