One of the funniest local music videos I've seen

I didn't know it was kosher to write about local electro-pop outfit Lazerbitch or not, because of the whole profanity thing. Then my editor sent me a link to Lazerbitch's new video and said "Blog about it or you'll never work in this town again, see?" ...

Well, that's kind of an exaggeration. But you get the point.

The video is for Lazerbitch's song "Coquette," and was shot in Baltimore and directed by Brian Morrison. In it, singer Libby Picken struts across town, stealing things from people (and sometimes returning them). She winds up on stage at The Windup Space, just in time for her show, and then leads a dance troupe out onto North Avenue. Pretty cool stuff.

Here's the video:

this just sparkled awesome all over my day.

wow. i cant remember the last time i saw a local band have such great production value on a video. also, it was pretty funny.

Beautiful video! Great work. And even 10x better when speakers are muted.

I loved this video. Awesome shots of Bmore too. Representing!

I wish I could mute Brad

This video production is legit, I saw a video, Director Brian Morrison did for a Nada Surf competition and his videos are getting better and better!

Oh c'mon Bea. The awful auto-tune couldn't even help the singing here.

But the actual video was pretty bad ass.

Libby is amazing!!!

Great video!

Good video. Would've been GREAT if it was in one take.

I don't think she arrived just in time for her show. Rather she stole the show from local hip hop electro group ClaireHux. This video is tight, but also a bit of a rip off of Bittersweet Symphony.

We always knew Libby had a great voice growing up and am pleased she has pursued her talent. It was very enjoyable and a truly unique video.

She pulled a "kanye" on the group in the club.
