Introducing Videoasis: A Quarterly Video Showcase of Northwest Music Videos

kexp-official-logo-800SEATTLE – KEXP, Northwest Film Forum and World Famous have partnered to present a quarterly Northwest music video showcase entitled “Videoasis.” Music Video Director & World Famous Producer Bobby McHugh and KEXP DJ Sharlese Metcalf meticulously curated the showcase to celebrate music videos and the artists who make them. Each screening will be a thematic mixture of Northwest made videos, both new and gems from the past.

The premiere installment of this partnership will be October 22 on the big screen at Northwest Film Forum and feature a mixture of dark, sexy and of course creepy videos in honor of Halloween. Featured bands include: Psychic Rites, King Dude, Chastity Belt, Ubu Roi, Grave Babies, Haunted Horses, Constant Lovers, UGLYFRANK and more to be announced. KEXP’s DJ Larry Rose will be spinning music before and after the screening.

“What do you get when you take two obsessive music/music-video-loving friends and add YouTube, late nights and a Tumblr account? You get the foundation for next installments of Videoasis!” says curator McHugh to describe his relationship with Metcalf and the evolution of the series.

“World Famous is a huge supporter of KEXP and Northwest Film Forum. We jumped at the chance to partner with two organizations we admire. KEXP and the Film Forum embody the smart, independent creative spirit of Seattle, which is at the heart of World Famous,” said Alan Nay, President of World Famous.

“KEXP is delighted to be a partner with Northwest Film Forum and World Famous in continuing this exciting local music video series. The Videoasis program continues the work KEXP does to champion local music with the added flavor of new and fresh ideas from an exploding Northwest film scene, we couldn’t be happier about this natural evolution,” commented DJ Sharlese.

Northwest Film Forum signed on as it ties directly into their mission to “support emerging artists and local film and media production. Videoasis is a superb platform for showcasing local talent and for creating even deeper connections between filmmakers and musicians in Seattle,” said Courtney Sheehan, Program Director.

All partner organizations are putting their stamp on the project. World Famous has designed the logo, poster and bumper, linked here. Northwest Film Forum was excited to host the event in their theater, and KEXP will be sharing their music expertise through DJ Sharlese, as well as spreading the word to their loyal listeners and fans.

This will be the third installment of Videoasis, built off the foundation from City Arts, Northwest Film Forum and 12toRain series started in April 2014.
