Earlier this month at the Communion Showcase, local videographer Bob Sweeney captured footage of The Lawsuits performing “Anybody’s Girl / 25w A19 120v Blues” and Gretchen Lohse singing “Spider at the Gate.” Using both HD digital and Super 8 cameras (with the extra camera assistance of Mike Southerton), Sweeney translated the classic / modern crossover of both acts’ sounds into black and white clips that are alluring and subtly mind-bending. The Lawsuits, who released their debut LP Cool Cool Cool last year, will make an appearance at this summer’s XPoNential Music Festival alongside Our Griffins, Diego Garcia, Beck and more. Tickets and three-day passes are now available here. Check out Sweeney’s videos below and get information about May’s showcase here.
