St. Louis Video: The Promise Ring, "Pink Chimneys," November 1997



I have no idea where this was filmed, and it's a bummer that the vocals are so low. But everyone in the video -- from the band members to the audience -- is having so much fun, I had to post it. These are emo pioneers the Promise Ring from November 1997, venue not listed, circa the classic Nothing Feels Good. Makes me wistful, since the later era of the band (ca. 2002's Wood/Water) was such a disappointment.
