Juan Wauters faces life and death in “This Is I” video, touring w/ Tall Juan including Brooklyn Valentine’s Day show (dates)
by Bill Pearis
Juan Wauters gets beat up a lot in music videos, where he is often a willing participant. In his newest, “This Is I,” from 2015’s Who Me?, the abuse continues, beginning with what seems to be a party and ending with a life-altering penalty kick. In between: pain. Matthew Volz, who has done Juan’s artwork since The Beets, directed the video and says:
In Juan Wauters “This is I” a recollection takes place. Of life so far, and the belief and disbelief that comes with it. His life, or how he remembers — in the unexplainable poetry of a dream.
You can watch the video below.
You can catch Juan on tour with pal Tall Juan (who has a cameo in the “This Is I” video) in February and March. The tour kicks off with a show at Brooklyn’s Shea Stadium on Valentine’s Day (2/14). There will be karaoke after the bands and tickets are on sale. Poster for the show, designed by Volz, is below.
