Video Week: 10th Concession, 'It Gets Better'
One of tbt*'s 2011 Ultimate Local Artists, 10th Concession made an unabashed plea for mainstream attention in 2010 with their single It Gets Better, inspired by the anti-bullying campaign of the same name. It's already had positive results, netting some $5,000 for a local GLBT charity.
The clip for the song is a fairly standard studio performance video, although it looks nice, and it features brothers Evan and Ian Koteles doing what they do best -- harmonizing in a radio-friendly style similar to the Eagles and Sister Hazel. Look out for a children's choir near the end of the clip, as well as an a cappella outro that will ensure this song will be stuck in your head all day.
