LA Music Video Festival Best Live Video

on Tuesday, May. 7th

This week we'll be featuring the work of the winners of the Los Angeles Music Video Festival.

Comedy alt-folk-metal duo Tenacious D (Jack Black and Kyle Gass) have been a cult favorite for years. They laid low after their feature film The Pick of Destiny solidified their cult status in 2006.

Last year the D returned with the album Rize of the Fenix. The track “Low Hanging Fruit” (Tenacious D) is from this album. This video directed by Dave Crabtree is of a "Vevo GoShow", a pop-up concert format created by the online music video megachannel Vevo.

As a live performance featuring music recorded on site this production of "Low Hanging Fruit" at Ribs USA in Burbank was eligible for the LAMVF's new "Best Live Video" award. The D beat their competition thanks to their virtuoso performance, and the rocking power of delicious ribs. (The song's a bit racy, just so you know.)
