Like a moth to flame, during SXSW I will flock toward Franklin BBQ.
I have more in common with Ace Reporter's “Stick To” music video than I thought.
Directed by Austin-based Peter Simonite and Annie Gunn, “Stick To” personifies one of the weirder winged insects and puts him on a bike; he's drawn to a light in an apartment, who as it ends up is Alex Gehring from rock band Ringo Deathstarr.
Watch the video below, then watch our exclusive behind-the-scenes commentary video below it. Simonite and Gunn describe the process of sending their human-moth out into the streets, and just how he got his dusty aura: with the help of ashes collected from Franklin's barbeque pits.
Gunn and Simonite were also behind Immaculate Noise favorite Explosions in the Sky's short film “Postcard from 1952”; the latter director also helmed another clip from a popular Austin band — Spoon — for their “Everything Hits at Once.”
