Video Premiere: Little Ugly, ‘Earnest’

by Categorized: music news Tagged: , , , Date:

This is pretty cool: if you’re a music fan living in the Hartford area, you’ve probably caught more than a few shows at Arch Street Tavern. You’re also likely to be familiar with Little Ugly, a local quartet that’s really at the top of its game right now, with a recent EP, “Where the River’s Born,” funded through a successful Kickstarter campaign, tours all over the map and a shelf full of music awards.

How nice, then, to see Little Ugly’s latest video, for a song called “Earnest,” professionally shot and recorded during a gig at Arch. You don’t have to look that closely to see a few people you know — many of whom are fellow musicians — when the camera pans out over the crowd. Because if there’s one thing you could say about the Hartford music scene, it’s that the bands all support each other. Lovely.

The video, which was shot by Ziggy Bennett (check out his website here), will run here exclusively for a week. Little Ugly will be going on tour again in August, so check for dates soon.
