Small City Calling's debut video for "Standing Room Only" teaches us a very important lesson — turning up your amps and blasting your tunes in the middle of the woods will ward off crazed ax-men that are after you. Okay, so maybe you won't be faced with this situation in real life [we hope], but the California indie-rockers have joined forces with PunchKiss Productions to put together a video that's as funny in concept as it is stunning in visuals. The boys hiked up into the woods of Mount Laguna to set the scene, and this effort proves that they truly took advantage of the surrounding natural light and elements. And of the video's quirky concept, the band weighs in,
"Directed by Dylan Bergstrom, the video tells the story of an angry huntsman, played by our manager, Steven Esparza, who is all but happy that some young boys have taken to his woods. Havoc and hilarity ensue as we dodge rope traps and run for our lives in the name of playin' music."
We couldn't have said it better ourselves, so check it out. In other SCC news, the band has recently been selected to play the San Diego date at Warped Tour after their success in the Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands. They're also duking it out in San Diego's "Garage to Glory" competition, where they're up to win a stint performing at SoundDiego LIVE's pool party.
