Video: Hot 8 Live

Last week I took the 1 train up to 125th street with BPP newscaster Rachel Martin and sound engineer Josh Rogosin to visit the Urban Assembly School for the Performing Arts. The occasion was a performance by New Orleans' Hot 8 Brass Band, whom Rachel had interviewed earlier in the day. We played a bunch of their music on the show on Friday, but you really want to see a band like this live.

Just for you, we've got the next best thing: crummy video! (Explanation after the jump.)
