In New York City, you can wear a turban, cloak and ritual paint in the shadow of your home subway stop NO PROBLEM. But when you have to get out of your mind/here, and also have a job and/or social life, the quick trip options are limited. Metropolis gypsies Religious to Damn shot the majority of the video for "Sunset" from their album Glass Prayer with Tiffany Frances in the places closest to Brooklyn that have real, good dirt. The cornfield torch scenes went down at Stuarts Farm in northern Westchester. The band shots by the lake are in the middle of Flushin Meadows Corona Park, about where the 7 train ends. The rest of the shots are Williamsburg and Greenpoint interiors, seen succumbing to the will of imaginary trees and fires. Need a staycation? Tell your boss you're sick and go to Dia:Beacon tomorrow or catch Religious to Damn tonight at Don Hills in Brooklyn.
