Start your workweek with a funeral. A sort of urban-viking funeral, for Parenthetical Girls frontman Zac Pennington, in their new video for "Curtains," the closing track on the new Privilege, Pt. V. You can read all about the Privilege series in our article on Parenthetical Girls, and you can enjoy the deliciously overwrought imagery of the video. (Conflict-of-Interest Pony—hi, again!—asks that we mention Zac once worked at the Mercury, and that one of the pallbearers is cartoonist/former intern Suzette Smith.) Parenthetical Girls perform this Wednesday, September 12, at the TBA Fest at Washington High School. If you thought this video could have used more melodrama, you should definitely be at that show.
