The Plot Sickens


* This is cheating. The video isn't from youtube, its from If You Make It

The Sidekicks - I Burned the Crops from If You Make It on Vimeo.

The Sidekicks performing "I Burned The Crops" at Berea Fest this year

The Run-down:
The Sidekicks are a bunch of 12 year olds from Cleveland that play pop-punk with a degree of finesse and originality that is pretty difficult to duplicate. Last year they released the amazing and vastly underappreciated 7" EP "Sam" on Whoa Oh records, which was a follow up to their nearly-as-good LP "So Long Soggy Dog". The Sidekicks are currently recording a new album that is easily my most highly anticipated upcoming release. This band rules hard.

Why this video is awesome:
Excellent quality, good camera work and an appropriately energized crowd. This video is fun and the show looks at least a little more fun than that. The song helps too, the breakdown in "I Burned The Crops" ranks among the best I can possibly recall.
