"For us, the live experience is about creating different moments," Pappas explains, "and breaking down the paradigm of crowd versus performer. We want to feel like if you miss a show, you're missing something that isn't going to be re-created. We're going to play the songs again, and we're going to have another show, but it's not going to be the same. That's really what those videos are all about: exploring unique ways to see things, and capturing a moment.
"I saw Daniel Johnston at SxSW, and he's the epitome of a lot of what I've been talking about. His artistic voice is uniquely him, and there's no filter on it. I was looking around at the other people in the audience, thinking, 'This is a moment in time that we're all experiencing together, and I wish I could bottle it up and take it with me, but what's so magical about it is you can't."
