Slam Dunk Make Great Videos

I watched this crafty video for the song "Bleacher Lovin" by Vancouver hippie-punks Slam Dunk at 2am on a Saturday night and thought it was pretty great. I'm happy to report that it still holds up in the stark and sober light of a Wednesday afternoon. It's a collage cut-up dream: Magazine pyjama men, a dancing Hans Solo, references to Faxe hands and an infectious chorus: "Gonna ride my bike, ride my bike, ride my bike, gonna shoot some cops, ride my bike!" It's oom-pah-oom-pah polka punk. It's what Edward Sharpe would sound like if he was actually good.

Slam Dunk are currently on tour with Babysitter. They play Gus' Thursday night with Scribbler and Quivers (10:30pm) and 1313 Hollis on Friday with Hind Legs and the Cannisters (7pm.) There will be a story on this tour in tomorrow's Coast. In the meantime, watch the video.
