Watch Lilac's Woozy, Barbecue-Tastic Video for "So Young"

San Francisco indie band Lilac released a pretty decent video for new single "So Young" yesterday. The video's description notes that it was shot on July 4, "with close friends at a Mission District backyard BBQ" -- and that's pretty much all you have to know.

Like the song itself, the video is woozy and dreamy, with shots of fireworks superimposed over the barbecue and a performance that seems only loosely connected to the music. The clip meanders through the day's activities -- with plenty of Tecate and grilling, of course. Check it out after the jump.

"So Young" was released online on June 7 as part of the band's S/T EP. Vinyl copies of the EP will be available in stores on July 19.

Lilac hits the Independent with Zodiac Death Valley and Cannons and Clouds on July 21.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
