"Perfect" - Major Arcana

Sunspot performs their previously unreleased song, "Perfect", as featured in their upcoming live concert DVD, "Major Arcana".

A combination of theater, audience participation, multimedia stage show, and rock concert party, they hired local actors to film scenes in between songs and provided a story that linked the songs to each other as well as a tarot card for each track (hence the title, "Major Arcana".) The idea is that the main character was getting an online tarot reading and the cards represented the themes of the songs as well as where the character was going in the story. The band premiered the show during SXSW in 2010 and took it on a tour of America's East Coast, Midwest and South in the Summer.

This DVD is the culmination of the tour and stage show. Recorded at The Annex in Madison on the last night of their tour, "Major Arcana" is the complete live production specially recorded for the DVD, along with tour videos, deleted scenes, a commentary track, and other special features. It will be available for purchase December 17th, as well as on their website,
