That was the mission of some of the Bay Area's finest break out artists, who were given a meager budget and paired with star filmmakers to create a stunning, brand new music video in just two days for the third annual Music Video Race. Finally, it's almost time to reveal the final projects, including Rin Tin Tiger, Rich Girls, and Lemme Adams, as they go head to head in the July 20 judging of the [...]
