Video: Cloud Cult, "Story of the Grandson of Jesus", Live on "Last Call With Carson Daly" (6/19/08)
Now, I bet many of you are wondering: what will happen to the painting which was created during the taping of Cloud Cult's, who performed the song "Story of The Grandson of Jesus", from their latest release Feel Good Ghosts, "Last Call" performance? Well, worry no more, good sirs and ma'ams. The Minneapolis art-rock collective, recently profiled in the Wall Street Journal, who are known for playing live with video screens and live painters, explain all via their online newsletter:
(Cloud Cult) usually auctions off the paintings that are created during their shows after the show ends, but there was no way to do this at the Carson Daly Show The painting from that show will be auctioned off on ebay starting this Saturday. Just search ebay for Cloud Cult painting and you should find the auction. We'll also have a link posted on Cloud Cult and Cloud Cult MySpace Page. This is the first time the band has done an auction like this. The painting was created by Scott West.
In other Cloud Cult news, the group is set to play the Rock The Garden, along with Andrew Bird, The New Pornographers, and Bon Iver. Tickets to the show, a concert taking place at the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, are sold out. The next opportunities for Cloud Cult fans to see their heroes in action will come twofold: first will be at the St. John's Center Block Party; the second will be at Denver's Monolith Festival, which is a music festival devoted to sustainability. Can't imagine why Cloud Cult would be interested in that.
