The Fatty Acids
Their joint project Riverwest Side Story is a face-off in what is possibly the world's first dual-band music video. Filmed in the musicians' shared neighborhood of Riverwest, Milwaukee, the film kicks off with the Fatty Acids' "Unscreened" before transitioning into Sat. Nite Duets' "Conjugal Visit."
Combining two music videos requires an epic plotline and the bands were up to the challenge. Choreographed dance numbers, a fight scene between the two groups, bottles of Mike's Hard strewn over a basketball court -- nothing was out the question.
S. Robinson"Actually shooting the video was a mix between trying to follow the script and improvising due to shortcomings," Fatty Acids lead vocalist (and video producer) Josh Evert tells Spinner. "Sometimes we would have to work around peoples' schedules by killing them off in the middle of the scene or having our friends fill in for them."
Despite the video's "Anchorman"-esque bloodbath, there was no animosity when it came to creating the project.
"The video was a ton of fun to write because it was basically a never-ending session of each band bouncing ideas off of the other," Evert says. "Almost every member of both groups contributed in some way to the script, which then had to be adapted to fit our ridiculous timetable and zero-dollar budget. Luckily, we have amazing and talented friends who work for bagels and Mike's Hard Lemonade."
