The Stepkids' "Legend in My Own Mind" Is Our Music Video of the Day
The Stepkids new video for "Legend in My Own Mind" reminds us of the year we went to a Halloween party dressed as one of the Beastie Boys. We didn't win a prize and got mad tired of lugging around a boombox all night. Here, the star of the video (played by NYC comedian Kurt Braunohler) takes a CD from a street hustler (The Daily Show's Wyatt Cenac) -- "C'mon, my man. You tellin' me you don't like hip-hop?" -- and slips into another world. The Stepkids are a group of talented back-up and studio players who have a good-thing-going as a trio with roots and an eclectic soul/R&B sound. They're playing a free show tonight, October 18, 7:30 p.m. at the Apple store over on West 14th Street plus tons of other shows during CMJ. Their website has all the details.
