Today marks the 5-year anniversary of the launch of Love Drunk Studio, the live, one-take music video website created by Django Greenblatt-Seay that has featured just about every decent band in Nebraska plus a ton of decent bands from outside of Nebraska.
I first wrote about Love Drunk way back in 2011 for The Reader (here). Here’s an excerpt:
The idea of creating one-take performance music videos started almost by accident. “I was experimenting with my home audio recording studio, trying to get a better understanding of how to use the equipment,” said Greenblatt-Seay, who also plays in bands Down with the Ship and Midwest Dilemma. “I asked my good friends in the band Flashbulb Fires to record a song in one take. They had a friend filming it with a flipcam and I had a crappy point-and-shoot. Afterward, I thought maybe we could edit it all together into a one-take live music video.”
Five years later, Django is still at it. In fact, to mark the occasion, Love Drunk Studio released Session #131, which features John Klemmensen and the Party performing their song “Ghosts” recorded live inside Urban Outfitters in the Slowdown complex. Check it out below, and celebrate the entire Love Drunk Catalog. And if you see Django, wish him a happy 5th birthday…
