The Onion A/V Club is premiering the video for the title track off Ra Ra Riot's new album Beta Love, out now on Barsuk. The video was directed and edited by David Dean Burkhart, a Ra Ra Riot fan who sent it to them after assembling it from found footage. The band immediately loved it and became even more enamored of it once they learned about its source, the local TV show "Dance Party" which aired in the '80s on the low-wattage UHF station KOFY in San Francisco. The band is currently touring in Asia and will kick off west coast leg of their tour in Vancouver on February 7.
