      VICE Premiere: Parenthetical Girls' "A Note to Self" Video

      By VICE Staff

      March 1, 2013

      As you begin to fold in the corners on your day—or maybe you'll be seeing this over the weekend, in which case who the hell knows what you're doing?—please feed your eye pores with this latest video from Parenthetical Girls. This one is for the song "A Note to Self," and Zac Pennington, singer for the band, has the following to say about it:

      "A winking homage to the works of performance artists like Vito Acconci, Marina Abramovic, Chris Burden, and Bas Jan Ader, "A Note To Self" uses obsolete, era-appropriate video technology to painstakingly recreate the awkward, incidental, and ridiculously fetishized aesthetics of late 60s, early 70s performance art documentation. It's supposed to make you feel that way." 

      Parenthetical Girls are playing quite a few shows soon, which you can check out HERE
