All right, so this is a new one. While most bands are content to promote their shows by sending out MySpace bulletins or posting fliers around town, leave it to John Common to come at it from a completely different angle. To spread the word about a show at the Oriental on Friday, February 20, from his new band, Blinding Flashes of Light, and the debut performance of his People's Kazoo Orchestra, dude composed a song on the spot, recorded it and slapped it on YouTube. We don't think he's putting us on. It's a bit too believably clunky to have been pre-written. See for yourself after the jump.
