Videohippos

w. Lizz King & Blue Leader

In short, Videohippos is a two-person band from Baltimore’s Wham City community and performs music along with projected video-art. Videohippos have toured in both US and Canada with friends Dan Deacon, OCDJ, Ecstatic Sunshine, DDMMYYYY, Death Set, +more. Both VH and Tick Tick are psyched that they are stopping in Burlington on their way from Brooklyn up to Montreal.

Please come out and add to the party!

Videohippos

Videohippos!!!!!!!!

As their name suggests VIDEOHIPPOS perform live with both audio and video. Backed by a giant screen while performing, VIDEOHIPPOS project personal and pop culture video collages in synch with the music. Though captivating its hard to distract from the stick skills of drummer Kevin O’meara (drums, vocals, keys) and pop weavings of guitarist Jim Triplett (guitar, vocals, keys). Pummeling his 4-piece kit with precision and power, O’meara draws drooling mouths agape, as well as creating the centerpiece for the VIDEOHIPPOS ballads. With beats in place Triplett works in waves of guitar melodies either via 6-string electric or a small toy guitar. Sampled beats and tones fit snuggly between the two while both ‘Hippos share vocal duties.

w. Lizz King & ( Check out Booty queen!!)

She usually sings about boys, culture, and theology.

Her most recent ambitions are in agriculture, pop booty tunes, monogamy, and preparing for any and all possible beautiful/catastrophic natural or unnatural shifts in our collective conscious.

    Lizz King is wonderful! She did a cover of “whats love got to do” back in October ’07 and it stuck to my rib for a long time.

    Blue Leader just makes my laugh my ass off every time I see him ranting on stage.
