Au revoir, mes amis!
WORD FROM THE STREET
Word from the street. Ain't It Hard was used in the 100% Skateshop Video! Song starts at 9:20, but you better take some time to watch the full video. The City Of Light like you never seen her before! Thanks kids, you make us shine!
TOM PETTY AFTER PARTY
Here's another good reason to spend 75 euros on a Tom Petty ticket: Woody & Paul will be playing at his afterparty! Well, that's one way to put it. On June 24 we'll be rocking the Heineken Music Hall and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers is our support act. That's another way to put it. :)
With shiny lenses, full HD cards, a little help from the City of Light and OddOne all hands on deck, we started the official shootings of 'Jack of All Trades' this weekend. We hope to bring you the video early summer.
NEW EXPO AT EFFENAAR CAFE

2 METER SESSIES RELEASE
EINDHOVEN/UTRECHT - Invited by Jan Douwe Kroeske, the four ringleaders from Eindhoven performed at the legendary 2 Meter Sessies in the Ziggo Studios Utrecht. Woody & Paul is now joining Nirvana, Grand Lee Buffalo and Ryan Adams in the massive musical archive. Thanks to a surprising setlist, live visuals of the HBO series 'True Blood' and a hundred delirious visitors, the evening of January 28th became quite memorable. The recordings will be released on December 24 in digital form on Hollow Horse Records. The album is a gift to all fans and followers, who can determine their own price for the album.
HEROES AND ZEROS VINYL SCANNED, CRUSHED AND SOLD
Lucas Maassen and Raw Color created the project D/struct. They are questioning the possibility to own a product when it is virtual. Music and movies are detached from their physical carriers and can be borrowed or bought from shops and digital libraries. For this project the 'Heroes and Zeros' vinyl is 3D scanned, crushed and stored in a sachet. Item is sold, but can be seen in the exhibition After the Bit Rush in MU Eindhoven.
FIRST TEST SHOOT MUSIC VIDEO 'JACK OF ALL TRADES'
Odd One motion graphics shot the first test shoot for the new Woody & Paul music video, Jack Of All Trades. Focused primarily on the location. Next step is character development and introducing objects and subjects to the location. More to come...
