Lo-Fi Saint Louis, St. Louis’ first internationally recognized and award-wining video podcast, will make its debut of a new seasonal episode format on Monday, March 3, 2008, and will celebrate with an event at the Mad Art Gallery on Saturday, March 8. The event will feature video screenings, live performances by two great St. Louis-area indie rock bands, the Helium Tapes and the 75s, and other surprises. Doors will open at 8:00 p.m. and admission will be $6.00.
Lo-Fi Saint Louis has been on hiatus since mid-January in order to allow for a revamping of the website and to give its creator, Bill Streeter, a long-needed break.
“I’ve been producing two videos a week for Lo-Fi for the past year and I really needed a little break to rethink some things and to recharge my creative batteries. I also wanted to do some other projects that I just didn’t have time for if I was producing so much for Lo-Fi,” Streeter said.
The podcast will now be produced on a seasonal schedule, similar to that of a television program, with separate schedules for the spring and fall seasons. Each season will consist of two videos per week for ten weeks each.
Some of the other projects Streeter will be taking on with his new spare time are the recently launched Lo-Fi Sessions and a sketch comedy video series with comedian Bill Chott that will begin production in May.
