On Sunday night, Sean “Har Mar Superstar” Tillmann and his crew of band-mates rolled into Seattle. The second to last show of their West Coast tour was held at Chop Suey, and it was the fucking jam. Before his set, I sat down and conducted an interview with Tillmann, which was filmed with a flip video camera. Two other past Monster Fresh interviewees/friends were also in attendance at the show: artist, Thea Wolfe and musician, Kimya Dawson. Although it would have been nice to see a little more movement from some in the hipster Seattle crowd, we still had a full-on R&B dance party throw-down. Some of this was recorded on the flip cam too.
The next morning I woke up with a message from Thea, who had been messaging on Facebook with Har Mar bassist, Denver Dalley. They band finally had a day off and wanted to go to a dance party, before heading up for their last show in Canada the next day. Thea was set to throw it at her house. Although the last minute party still went down, and went down well, Tillmann‘s crew never made it. After partying and traveling for 6 straight days, their bodies decided to crash out under them and use the day off for what it was intended for… regeneration.
I still need to go through my footage and decide how I want to edit and present the material. Until I am able get all that shit together, however, we’d like to tide you over by presenting you with a recently posted Har Mar Superstar tour video that was filmed on a flip camera of their own. In this video, taped on Jan. 22nd, Tillmann shows of his dance skills and expresses his love for pop-star Hannah Montana by singing along to her hit track, “Party In The USA“, while driving a van up I5 to Portland.
