Video for “Up For Grabs” by Astronauts, etc.

A few weeks ago, I saw Oakland-based Astronauts, etc. open for Toro y Moi and was mighty impressed.

After the show, I put their latest album, “Mind Out Wandering,” on repeat.

One song in particular got stuck in my head, bringing up random thoughts about love and relationships.

Clocking in at 2 minutes 56 seconds, “Up For Grabs” is a gem of a song. It inspired me to make a video using some public domain film footage. People of a certain age will immediately recognize it.

Earlier today I was thrilled to see that Adrian Spinelli discovered my video.

Random internet person made a vid of "Up For Grabs" by @astronautsetc set to Travolta's 'Boy in the Plastic Bubble':
