Los Angeles Music Video Festival Closing Night Extravaganza

Los Angeles Music Video Festival Closing Night Extravaganza

Carlos Ramirez

As music television has continued its decline — or, at least, the dramatic rejiggering that's given us reality properties like Jersey Shore and 16 and Pregnant, for better or worse — music videos have become less a part of popular culture. But the art form began in obscurity and the relative decrease in mass-media attention has allowed it to thrive, returning to its avant-garde roots. The seventh annual Los Angeles Music Video Festival — a weeklong celebration that features a juried competition, a VR showcase and new videos from A Tribe Called Quest, Paramore, Bastille and others — wraps up on Saturday with a closing-night extravaganza. The event culminates with "Björk: The Music Video Retrospective," a look back at the Icelandic singer's stunning visual output over the years; an awards ceremony to honor the weekend's best videos; and an audiovisual collaboration between poet-rapper George Watsky and staunch cohort Carlos Lopez Estrada. For one night, you might forget that Snooki was ever a thing.
