Califone: Tunnelvision

Califone was recently filmed at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco for Pitchfork's video series Tunnelvision (which pulls together a handful of the best web-based live music videographers). As any WS reader knows, I'm a pretty big Califone fan, and I'm stoked for their upcoming appearance at this year's South By Southwest. In the video, the band performs a subdued, folk-inflected take on "Funeral Singers," the standout from last October's All My Friends Are Funeral Singers. They also look like the coolest group of middle-aged dads ever. Enjoy:
