Wilco Backdrop Video – Burlesque Carousel

During South-by-Southwest 2011 there was a carousel set up downtown for what seemed like a single night. It was a typical Austin stumble-upon – like magic – under a nearly full moon. Uncrowded and relaxed, in the middle of an otherwise chaotic and bustling downtown scene. Topic switch: the creative staff at Austin’s Alamo Drafthouse have the grooviest jobs on the planet, and consequently throw the coolest parties, complete with burlesque dancers. Superimposing these two images gives an impressionistic ‘feel’ of Austin that is outside of its stereotypes but still within its character. This video was also submitted to the Wilco fan contest.
