Episode#6: Peel

This video answers the age-old question: Why did God make jalapeños spicy? There's even a suggestion from the audience as to what kind of plug might work as a substitute for earplugs. It's inaudible in the video, but if you want to guess just look at vocalist/guitarist Dakota's reaction and where he puts his hands after laughing nervously. This is a family blog, so I'll refrain from giving y'all the answer. Fun fact: Peel, this quirky and upbeat indie guitar-pop band, operates as a quintet for most of the year. But in the summertime, Peel mysteriously becomes a four-piece (principal songwriter Josh Permenter apparently enjoys a long summer vacation). Peel are Peek-A-Boo labelmates with The Octopus Project, featured on 'NITES a couple weeks ago.

Filmed July 12, 2008 at The Hole In The Wall on Guadalupe St and Dean Keaton.
