Screen grab from "Sacrifice (ft. Thank Aaron)" by Marco Pavé.
Today's Music Video Monday is playing catch-up.
In case you're just now joining us, the mission of Music Video Monday is to highlight the work of Memphis' musical artists and filmmakers. We've got a lot of both categories, and, unfortunately, they don't always have the proper venue to showcase their talents.
I've been gratified by the times when people randomly tell me that MVM has exposed them to new acts they didn't know about. "I had no idea we had so much great music here!" is a comment I hear a lot.
I am guilty of assuming everyone knows about MVM, and I've seen everything. I was recently reminded that is not so, when Dana Gabrion sent me this video she produced with director Chris Morgan for Marco Pavé in 2017. We're big fans of Marco here at the Flyer. So I assumed we had featured the video two years ago. In fact, we did not. And it's a good one!
"Sacrifice (ft. Thank Aaron)" was filmed in the abandoned Marine Hospital. Marco Pavé gets to go nuts in a straightjacket, and looks completely badass. Check it out.
