Best of BUG: The Evolution of Music Video
Hosted by Adam Buxton
Doors at 7:30
Show at 8:30
Come feast your eyes and, of course, your ears - on an evening of awe-inspiring music videos, astounding online nuggets and a unique brand of sit-down comedy with Adam Buxton British comedian, writer, broadcaster, video director, general music video enthusiast and YouTube comment wrangler.
BUG began in April 2007 as a series of bi-monthly shows at BFI Southbank the home of British cinema. These celebrations of global creativity in music video have since become a phenomenon, as popular and brilliant as the visual ideas which the BUG team unearths. This special show for Downtown Independent is a selection of some favourite videos from the swathe of work recently presented in London with Adam's own inimitable presentation and some delightfully unbalanced commentary from YouTube commentators, all interspersed with some gems of Adam's own making.
This special edition of the Best of BUG promises outstanding clips rarely seen on a big screen (or even a TV screen), some incredible online discoveries and hilarious insights into the online community.
