OC Mixtape Series #5: Pictureplane Mix & Video Premiere
Anyone who can mix fishnet mesh, fitted caps, latex body armor and basketball jerseys, I'm a fan of––especially if their music sounds like that, too. Such is the case when it comes to Travis Egedy, aka Pictureplane. I've managed to see him live at least five times in sold-out venues, big and small. And last weekend, when he took the stage alongside Spank Rock and Big Freedia, was my sixth. (Am I at groupie status yet?) Besides giving us this totally banging downloadable mixtape, he also chose the OC Blog to officially premiere his new video for "Black Nails". Shot entirely while on tour in Russia, this fiery clip really takes you there––see for yourself.

Zachary Ching: You're constantly touring all over the world. Your last video for "Negative Slave" was shot on pyramids in Mexico, and "Black Nails" was shot in Russia. What's your favorite city in the world for playing shows?
