    Blogotheque, La
    From La Blogotheque and renowned French independent filmmaker Vincent Moon comes Take Away Shows. The sessions consist of an artist or band playing in the streets, in a bar, a park, or even in a flat or in an elevator every week. Of course, what makes the beauty of it is all the little incidents, hesitations, and crazy stuff happening unexpectedly. These live, unusually staged performances differ from the artifice of traditional music videos in favor of single-take, organic and primarily acoustic sessions, keeping the raw sound of the surroundings. The goal is to try and capture instants, film the music just like it happens, without preparation, without tricks. Spontaneity is the keyword.moreless

    IFC
    Trapped in the Closet on the Independent Film Channel (IFC), starring Grammy-winner R. Kelly as Sylvester, is one of the most unusual creative endeavors in recent history. Originally aired in 2005 and 2007 as a series of 22 short videos, Trapped in the Closet is now available in its entirety. Perhaps the first R&B operetta artist ever, R. Kelly takes us through a musical soap opera of the lives of Sylvester, his wife Gwendolyn (Cat Wilson), and an ever-increasing circle of community members connected in some way to the couple. Sometimes comic, sometimes tragic, there are surprises at every turn. While maintaining a single melody and rhyme scheme throughout, R. Kelly masterfully weaves a tale of love and deceit, complete with cut scenes, dream sequences, and flashbacks. To add to the fun, Kelly plays several roles himself, including a narrator in an angelic white suit, a holy roller preacher, and an unrepentant pimp.moreless

    Amoeba Music
    Amoeba Music Live Performances are videos of live sets at one of three locations of Amoeba Music, the famed California independent record stores. Amoeba stores are peculiar for their large size, much larger than most indie music hot spots. The chain began in Berkeley, California in 1990, and went on to open locations in San Francisco and Hollywood. In addition to boasting a huge selection of CDs, records, tapes, and DVD's, the stores have some venue space where musicians can perform live shows. These shows are now filmed and made available on-line through amoeba.com. Past episodes have featured sets by The Go! Team, Elvis Costello, Mandy Moore, Conor Oberst & The Mystic Valley Band, Band of Horses, and Aimee Mann. Other performers, like comedian Patton Oswalt, have even stopped by for gigs at one of the iconic stores. Amoeba Music Live Performances bring you exclusive sets from new and classic acts, live from the record shops that are more than just a place to buy records.moreless

    Revision3
    Not MTV (a clever acronym for Not Mainstream Typical Videos) is a web-based show for Revision3 that explores the world of independent music. With interviews, music videos and exclusive programs the show introduces the viewer to new artists and music, helping independent musicians gain visibility. For now a partner site serves as the host for the web episodes, but soon they will get their own web site. It will have several more programs, episodes and hundreds of official band videos, but while that doesn't happen, the web episodes follow bands on tour, promote new records, concerts and more. They explore not only Hip Hop, but all branches of independent music such as Electronic and Rock, interviewing DJ's and other musicians to help promote them and different music scenes to the audience. Searching for new stories all across the country, but having a focus on Los Angeles, Not MTV is definitely not your typical music web channel.moreless

    LaundroMatinee
    LaundroMatinee's Video Sessions is a online video series featuring live performances by independent bands and solo artists. Craig "Dodge" Lile and Jeff DuPont lit the fire for the peculiar music site LaundroMatinee.com back in 2006, with audio recordings of various independent bands, starting with their initial capture of a performance from Catfish Haven. Somewhere along the line they enlisted videographer Tim Wilsbach to film the sessions, and from there the project began to take serious shape. The first band to be featured in LaundroMatinee's Video Sessions was Bon Iver, and since putting the show online in 2008, word has spread that Lile and DuPont have a pretty cool little show on their hands. Seeking out original and unique musicians, the sessions showcase talent, and while being mainstream is certainly not at all a requirement, bands like The Dandy Warhols have joined emerging groups like The Young Republic and Ben Sollee to fill out an enigmatic lineup. The site has interviews and blogs that keep users in touch and informed, but the real draw here is the performances. Very special, and very good, LaundroMatinee's Video Sessions are a must see for fans of independent music.moreless

    NPR - National Public Radio
    Tiny Desk Concerts is a feature of the NPR (National Public Radio) show called "All Songs Considered," a spinoff of the popular show "All Things Considered." The musical spinoff is the creation of the host and director of the original NPR show, Bob Boilen, who has shared his love of music with listeners of "All Things Considered" for decades. Over time, Boilen, who often conducted and recorded casual and friendly interviews with musicians while sitting at his small desk in the cramped NPR Music room, organically came to the practice of asking them to give a little performance live while standing there. Inspired, surely, by Bob's honest and open love of their music, artists commonly agree to take out their instruments, and with knees bumping Bob's desk and their back brushing the bookshelves behind them, they perform the most incredible impromptu and magically intimate mini-concerts, weaving their spirits into music for a singular, solitary audience of Bob alone, and through his recordings the entranced audience of his NPR show. Now the recordings are collected and arranged together in the NPR site pages devoted to them, listed as Bob's famous Tiny Desk concerts.moreless
