Vid Pick: Nat Osborn Band – Exorcism
Friday, March 10, 2017

We’re going back to back Nat, as I’m following up last week’s Vid Pick of Nat Osborn Band’s “Cagey” with a concert video of their song “Exorcism.”

The clip was filmed at a show in Krakow, Poland, at a venue named Alchemia, which Osborn describes as “one of my favorite clubs in the world,” adding, “It's right in the heart of the vibrant Kazimierz neighborhood in Krakow. Kazimierz is the old Jewish neighborhood that, for obvious and tragic reasons, was left empty in the mid-20th century, but has experienced a major cultural revival.”

While he says the upstairs part of the venue features a candle-lit bar that's styled to feel like it's someone's home, “Downstairs is a club that fits about 200 people squashed in. The sound is fantastic and we've always had really high energy, memorable shows there. It's the perfect combination of a bit rugged, and highly polished. A very hard balance to strike, but one that I find is found in some ratio at all the best clubs in the world.”

On the night of this particular show, Osborn says, “I believe shirts came off, and vodka shots were passed around,” noting, “The show, in general, was sweaty, vibrant, and high energy.”

Poland may seem like an unusual place for an NYC-based band to film a performance clip, but according to Osborn, “Krakow's become a home for this band on that side of the Atlantic, and at the end of a two week tour it felt like the perfect opportunity to capture the band in full swing at one of our favorite venues. We teamed up with a fantastic three man video crew, and put the audio in the hands of Danielle Warman of Chiller Sound (Phish, Bruce Springsteen), and ended up with a really exciting live video.”

Check out “Exorcism,” and let the soul of Nat Osborn Band rid you of any devils you may have in your life.

B-Lister Nation
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
