TVD Video Premiere:
The Sextones, “How Could I Have Known”

Filmed and recorded on location at the haunting and historic Lear Theater, “How Could I Have Known” is part one in a series of live music videos produced by The Sextones and Emmy award winning videographers, Ford Corl, David Ware, and Shawn Sariti of The Reno Sessions.

“It was in a rehearsal that the idea first came up—we considered it a ‘Hail Mary’ option considering no events have been held in the Lear since its doors closed 13 years ago,” stated Mark Sexton. Maybe the off-limits mystique was what made it the perfect location.

After several trips to city hall and back, the band graciously received necessary approvals from the City Of Reno and Artown. “We were so happy to have the city and arts community behind us on this very ambitious idea. It’s been stimulating to see Reno working to create a community in which artists can thrive.”

The band shot a total of three music videos as live takes in the same day. They powered lights, cameras, and musical gear with generators in the freezing cold weather. “There was a lot that could have gone wrong but we were amazed everything fell into place. That night the whole crew packed up with big smirking smiles on our faces.”

“How Could I Have Known” is from The Sextones’ brand new release Moonlight Vision, which is in stores now.
