In the Alicia J. Rose directed—she of booking and accordion fame—video for "Octavio," Viva Voce look to be playing the roles of caretakers to an isolated hotel. If Hollywood as taught me anything, that always works out well.

Kevin Robinson gets "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" behind a typewriter, his wife Anita sips tea and looks creepy, suit vests are worn, and in the end, Scatman Crothers dies. Okay, maybe that last part was a lie. But you'll never know until you watch the video.

Viva Voce have their CD release this Saturday at the Wonder Ballroom. There is a big article on them in this week's paper, which is not online yet. No links for you.
