The Shins ask fans to film gig

Mobile phone footage wanted for TV show

The Shins have asked every member of their audience who attends their set at Austin City Limits to record the show using mobile phones or digital cameras.

The band will be performing new songs from their forthcoming album ‘Wincing the Night Away’, and the band want the footage to create a video showing the band performing from hundreds of different angles.

The band will give the audience a cue to begin recording, and they can then go to www.myspace.com./StareAllYouWant for details on where to send the video clips.

The band will take to the AT&T Stage at the Austin City Limits Music Festival in Austin, Texas at 4.30pm on September 16.

The three-day festival takes place between September 15 and 17, and is being headlined by Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers, Van Morrison and Willie Nelson while the likes of Gnarls Barkley, The Flaming Lips and The Raconteurs are also set to play.
