Watch XIXA's New Video to get Ready for the Show Friday

Posted By on Mon, Jul 16, 2018 at 12:30 PM

Does the video to “Tombstone Rashomon,” XIXA’s latest single, draw any philosophical parallels to Akira Kurosawa’s 1950 Japanese allegorical period piece, Rashōmon? Or to director Alex Cox’s take on the historic Gunfight at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone-Rashomon (2017)? It’s a thorny matter. The whistled melody line in the song, however, does nod towards Ennio Morricone’s epic theme to The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966). Scope out the stunning video—directed by Lesli Wood and Daniel Martin Diaz—for clues. And ask them yourself when the psychedelic cumbancheros return to Club Congress on Friday, July 20.
