Some facts about San Francisco indie pop outfit, My First Earthquake: the band wrote, recorded and shot a video for a holiday Hanukkah song that has now racked up more than a quarter-million plays on YouTube; Singer Rebecca Bortman used to be in a ‘could-have-been-famous’ psych-metal band called Ice Queen; bassist Chad Thornton chose to stay behind when the band he was in with Keith Murray of We Are Scientists moved to New York; guitarist Dave Lean helped develop essential components of the iPod; drummer Andre Salcido played in a ‘trucker punk’ band who once shared a stage with the metal band GWAR. Ok, ok, enough already. This video is fun.
