The eastside's own Chasing Kings just released this video for "Do It To Myself" from their upcoming album Nice Guys, out digitally October 16.
2. Bad Books
Bad Books play the Troubadour tonight. Check out this video for "Forest Whitaker" featuring a veritable plethora of movie clips of Forest Whitaker. Nice.
