First it was seeing local singer songwriter Reed Thomas Lawrence's name on the lineup for the Rothbury Festival up in Michigan alongside the likes of Bob Dylan, the Dead, String Cheese Incident, The Black Crowes, Broken Social Scene and more, now we click over to MySpace Music and see RTL listed next to Kanye West on the videos page.
The page has the video for Lawrence's song "Music" which was shot here in Bend by Rage Productions and features some quintessentially Bend moments including but not limited to cruiser bikes and a backyard barbecue accompanied by a reggae-ish, summery groove. Check it out RTL on MySpace Music for yourself.
