Apologies for the lousy video quality -- Google Video was the only service that would host and stream such a large file. Also, footage of Peter Bjorn & John and Women has been intentionally omitted because they both pretty much sucked. Please feel free to contact me for access to the original video in WMV format. All content filmed in Austin, Texas on a Flip Mino handheld recorder.
