The video was filmed, edited, and produced by the local company Springwood Productions at The Ottobar in Baltimore, MD in front of a live audience on May 7th. It was the first date of SLP’s headlining spring tour.
Kellen McKay, singer/songwriter/guitarist for the band, says, “This being our first music video, I felt an obligation for us to have a video that showcased the quality of our performance and energy of our live show. What better way to do that than with footage of us playing to our hometown crowd on the first date of our spring headline tour?”
ABOUT STACKED LIKE PANCAKES
Reinvigorating the sounds of classic ska, Stacked Like Pancakes (SLP) piles on boisterous horns and punk rock attitude to create high energy music synthesizing the vibes of Reel Big Fish, twenty-one pilots, Foo Fighters, and an untraceable amount of other artists and genres. Since 2007, SLP has shared the stage with national and international acts, toured on the Vans Warped Tour, headlined their own self-booked tours, and in December 2015 released their latest crowd-funded 15-track monster-album THIS IS US.
The token with this group is their live performance. Concert venues and music patrons alike should be prepared for the stage to shake, the crowd to be wild and unpredictable, and the show to be a deliberate fusion of spontaneity and precision. Their community fan base – the #PancakeNation – is hungry for their band to grow. Stacked Like Pancakes epitomizes a tough DIY band despite a meaningless band name, and are rightfully on the rise to claim an international stage of their own.
