Baeble Music has just recently launched and it’s pretty cool. The NYC-based company says that “this is the only place where a community of indie music fans can interact side-by-side with full-length concerts, video clips, and extensive band profiles.”
Essentially, Baeble is a indie-lovin’, video-cravin’ fan paydirt web destination. They shoot videos of bands’ full sets at shows mostly in New York, and stream one-song clips at their site to spur sales of the videos (with prices under $10 per video). As Baeble blurbers write…”We film their concerts, review their shows, compile their band profiles, and deliver the whole package to you within days of the gig.
I’ve already checked out clips of The Hold Steady’s Castle Clinton Summer ’06 show, Damien Jurado’s October Knitting Factory show and others. Sounds alright to me. I’d buy a video of some CMJ shows, or last week’s Robert Pollard show. Baby, You’ve Got a Stew Goin’ offers another perspective.
