So imagine my suprise as I’m browsing Time’s website and stumble across local musician Jeremy Messersmith under the headline “Top 5 Viral Videos of the Week.”
Sure enough, the video for his song “Tatooine” features a paper cut-out synopsis of the entire Star Wars trilogy, by animator/filmmaker Eric Power, and who can resist that?
Messersmith is among the more savvy internet users in the music world, allowing people to “pay what they choose” for downloads of his songs. And TODAY, at 1:30pm Central Time, he’s streaming a live performance on his website.
If you prefer in-the-flesh concerts to the digital experience, Messersmith is performing at the Cedar Cultural Center on November 27.
