Portland band Pure Bathing Culture is embarking on a short winter tour down the West Coast next week with Seattle gentle-rockers Pure Moon, and for some reason, Poor Moon's Ian Murray has directed this enjoyable series of videos about the tour (Zak Downing shot and edited the videos). It's a sort of mockumentary style collection of interviews, highlighted by an appearance by Blitzen Trapper drummer Brian Koch, who's pretty damn hilarious. (Note: Koch is not a member of either band.)

Part one is up above, and parts two and three are after the jump. It builds to a climax of the band's joint rehearsal in a gag that you sort of need to hear to believe. This joint tour isn't doing a Portland show, but we'll take these videos.
