Rising local electronic pop duo Marian Hill spent some time with local videographers Out of Town Films this winter in the halls of Haverford Middle School, where bandmates Jeremy Lloyd and Samantha Gongol met as kids. We saw the video for “One Time” back in February; today, the blog BlahBlahBlahScience premiered the second video the duo filmed that day, a performance of “Lovit” that you can watch below.

In the new video from Out of Town Films featuring Dr. Dog, the local videographers sat down with Scott McMicken and his bandmates to talk about clip’s featured song.  ”The Truth,” taken from the band’s new B Room LP, is one of the more contemplative and slow-paced songs on the record, as well as one of the oldest songs (McMicken says he wrote it about three or four years ago).  Watch the latest collaboration Dr. Dog and OOTF below.  Dr. Dog plays two nights at the Electric Factory this weekend; tickets and information can be found here.

If you missed Toy Soldiers‘ epic, sold-out album-release party for The Maybe Boys this past Friday night, here’s a chance to make up for it. Our friends at Out of Town Films just sent out word that they’re hosting their second “pop-up concert” this Wednesday, September 18th, and Ron Gallo and crew are the stars.

The series is basically what it sounds like – a band performs a free concert at an undisclosed location, and the Out of Town videographers film it for a series of live shorts. Their first one happened this summer with The Districts at Girard Hall in Fishtown; to RSVP for this show, shoot an email to outoftownfilms(at)gmail(dot)com. You’ll be notified of the location the morning of the show. Below, check out The Districts performing “Long Distance” at the first pop-up concert, and download “Tomorrow to Today” from Toy Soldiers’ Key Studio Session.
