Septimius The Great's Artscape performance video

Though Nikc posted a link to this video under the original Septimius the Great thread, I thought it deserved its own special little spotlight.

Septimius The Great did indeed perform at this year's Artscape Festival, and what a spectacle it was.

There were three -- not two, not four, but three -- dancers who performed a choreographed routine. Septimius himself was front and center, in a body length white cape, singing (lip-synching, perhaps?) one of his singles. Check it out ...

I love how, near the beginning, he asks, "Y'all ready, Baltimore?" and you can practically hear the crickets chirping. They were just cowed into silence by his magnificence, I'm sure.

I actually did contact this dude to play our CD release on 10/8 and am really disappointed that I didn't receive a response. On the other hand, he is busy doing interviews for Spanish radio according to his facebook page. Good for him.

Sam - Completely related to this post, do you have a bead on this?

If not, why not?

How many sets did he play at Artscape. He's got several cuts on the video.

@Evan - Team Septimius has been recently formed to han dle all the inquiries. We never got your message about 10/8. Please send me your contact info or feel free to contact us again and we can go from there.
