Since we last caught up with Sam Ahmed, the 21-year-old WebsterX mastermind has been a pretty busy fellow. He’s played out avidly; he’s snagged a spot on NEWaukee’s Eastside Music Tour (March 1) and is among the 20-plus artists representing Milwaukee at SXSW next month. Wednesday evening, WebsterX’s first music video, for “Blue Dream” off his debut, Desperate Youth, (one of MilMag’s favs of 2013).
Don’t adjust your tracking. This video was shot on VHS by the BLACKMANN video team of Phil Hoffman and Dan Black. The basement shots were done at Black’s Eastside home. Interesting fact: there are actually two different bathtubs in the video. (NSFW language)
See WebsterX is high-def/real life form – and with Fresh Cut Collective as his backing band – at the aforementioned Eastside Music Tour at 8 p.m. on the Rochambo Stage. Tune to 88Nine Radio Milwaukee at 4 p.m. today (Feb. 6) to hear WebsterX’s live in-studio performance.
