We’ve long wondered what DC music stalwart Jason Mendelson can’t do. He plays all the instruments in his eponymous band, and fills in many other bands in the area. He produces, records, and writes the tracks, having dedicated years to penning a song for each station in the DC metro system. Heck, he even hosted the MetroSongs podcast that yours truly guested on.
In the expansive music video for Mendelson’s newest single “Send a Medic”, his impressive skills portfolio is on full display: forensic detective, mailman, cooking show host, cowboy, secret lover. The amusing setup of Mendelson as characters on every show on television, with lots of delicious cameos, loops around to a bloody but satisfying conclusion at the close of director Jeff Ray of Mango City Media’s delightful vignette.
To get all the Jason Mendelson your life can handle, head to Fairfax’s Epicure Café Saturday night September 14th for, we kid you not, JasonFest II featuring post-rock band Koshari, funky hip-hop with The Lucky So & So’s, new waver Daniel Ouellette and Mr. MetroSongs himself.
