Watch Wallpaper Perform 'Indian Summer' -- While Driving Through Nevada

  • Eric Frederic, singin' in the van.
People think being in a band is glamorous. And while it may be for a few brief moments of stage-diving and bathing in applause, being in a band also means countless hours of driving from show to show, far away from your friends and your family and your home.

While the Bay Area has out celebrating our World Series victory this week, the boys from electro-dance duo Wallpaper have been on the road, suffering through inland heat and missing out on the action. To stay occupied and rehearsed, they made video of themselves performing their new song, "Indian Summer," in a place they've been spending a lot of time lately -- the car. This video was actually filmed while driving across Eastern Nevada. Check it out after the jump.

As Wallpaper's Eric Frederic explained:

Touring is hard! While we're off driving through random parts of Nevada, the SF Bay Area is having an Indian Summer and the Giants win the World Series! Wish we were home today celebrating with y'all! So this desert driving tour rehearsal of our new song also titled "Indian Summer" is a tribute to our favorite place to be when its hot in Autumn. Brought to you courtesy of flip camera, duct tape, and Red Bull.

Here it is then, the "road jam" rehearsal version of "Indian Summer":

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
