Watch My First Earthquake's New Video: Your Childhood Memories Depend on It!

Posted By on Wed, Jul 13, 2011 at 1:59 PM


Everyone knows the best part of going to a fast food place is playing in the ball pit (at least until you're eight years old or, barring that, until that guy from management gives you that creeped-out look again and tells you to get out). Ahhh.

Well, what if instead of plastic balls, you had balloons? And what if everyone had a musical instrument and a Mexican wrestling mask?

That's essentially the concept behind local band My First Earthquake's new video for "Enya Got Nothing," a playfully fun guitar/synth rocker off the band's new album Friction.

Hit the jump to watch the video and relive the memories.

The clip's description says it took 1,300 balloons (and a lot of fans with nothing to do except blow them up) to shoot the video, which makes this the coolest ball(oon) pit we've seen in a while.

  • 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.'"
