Celluloid Bachelor #25: Paleface "You Are The Girl"

There aren't a lot of bands I saw twice this year. Fewer still are the bands that left me hungering for a third show. In fact, Paleface and Mo might be the only act that could lay claim to that mantle, such that it is.

Today's video is a performance they put on in an absolutely beautiful yet devastated abandoned building. Simply Paleface sitting and playing guitar and, occasionally, harmonica, and Mo standing and playing the tambourine, the wonder in this video is in both the simple motion of the camerawork and the decrepit destruction surrounding them. This is a video that could have been made anywhere in Cleveland.
