Program Gets Video (plus an SCR Connection) [11/13/2007 03:46:00 PM]:
I sure do wish those sweet-singing popsters in Program played out more often -- it seems like they hardly ever do, these days, which sucks for me, 'cause I've never been able to catch 'em live. In the meantime, I have to make do with stuff like the two videos below, recently posted on the band's Myspace site...
The first is a live interview/performance on Fox's MyMusic Houston, with the band playing an as-yet-unreleased-and-pretty-badass song called "Kinky Toxin". The second, "Push Pop", is a little bit older, from the release of Evil is Job One (reviewed here back in May, if you haven't been keeping track), and it's pretty darn good in its own right.
Oh, and since this is Houston and we've always got to have a "connection" of some sort to anything cool (e.g.: "It was revealed today that rock star Pete Wentz of Fallout Boy has a Houston connection, and 13 has the exclusive -- Wentz once stopped at a local Foodarama to use the bathroom..."), here's the super-special Space City Rock connection to the first video: interviewing the band is none other than SCR alum Ruben Dominguez, who's since moved on up to doing the tail-end of the Morning News & being Assignments Manager at Fox26. Yo, Ruben! Good to see you, man...
(Oh, and by the by -- after looking more carefully at the Program site, it looks like they are playing soon, on December 7th at someplace I dunno called Azteca's. Make it out if you can...)
