First Thursday, Sept. 6, will mark the third installment of one of Boise’s best musical shindigs: The 208 Music Video Show.
The annual exhibition of Idaho-made music videos at Neurolux has grown steadily larger and better over the years, and will feature more than 30 entries across multiple genres of music.
This year, Boise Weekly wants to add a little something extra to the mix. We’re going to make a crowdsourced music video on site at the event, which will be shown at the end of the evening.
How will we execute this Sparta-level madness? With the help of you and your smartphone, of course.
Starting when the doors open at 7 p.m. and all the way up until the first intermission, BW will be accepting whatever footage and/or pictures you’d like to dump into our editing computer from your smartphone, no matter what it is. Sexts from your 21st birthday? We want 'em. Video of your cat being adorable? We want it. You and your roommate taking bong rips while riding the unicycle? Cue that shit up.
We’ll take whatever is offered and shape it into the best music video ever cranked out during one hour inside Neurolux. After which, we’ll delete all footage and never speak of it again.
Videos start at 8 p.m. It costs $5 to get in, unless you're a director or band that submitted a video.
