Free FIREFLY kickoff show at GAP in NYC - RSVP here!

The new I Hate California video premieres today via Tumblr.  Beautifully shot in southern California by director and cinematographer Matt Sanders, this B&W short is comprised 100% of reflected images, a deliberate device for focusing on the song’s back story.

Written about a time when TLR singer Eric James, then newly married and having to travel alone to Los Angeles for 6 weeks, IH8CA captures the frequent dichotomy of hopes versus reality.

“You have to be careful what you wish for’, says Eric of the song.  ‘Big American dreams, heading West to fulfill your destiny – like you’re gonna write the perfect radio song with a big hit-maker. Then you look around and realize it’s hell and you just wanna go home.”

"I Hate California" Official Music Video premiere…less than two hours!
