Enough Obama-related Illinois news is in the books. Oprah cried. It's over. Let's talk bands again!
Just beginning is the first installment Pennsylvania-based band Illinois' video saga of Kid Catastrophe. That's right, another campaign is already starting.
On the first Tuesday of the next six months, Illinois will release a new episode for The Adventures of Kid Catastrophe, with the role of Kid Catastrophe played by the band's own Chris “Arch” Archibald. The video was directed by People-Food, a Los Angeles based art collective specializing in zany film, theater, television and online content.

Chapter 1 also includes an iTunes exclusive “Irish Whiskey,” which can be heard, along with “Trees” at Illnois' Myspace.
