Let's face it. Cable is full of reality TV shows that depict the fact and fantasy surrounding music's pop celebs many of whom reside right here in our city. But none of the shows rep the real like the mini-doc series "THE STAND ON DEMAND."
For three years, the Comcast OnDemand series (available under Real City TV) has documented the underground hip-hop talent rarely seen or heard on the boobage tubage, including such local artists as Binkis Recs, DJ Rasta Root and Floyd the Locsmif. A sense of the city's underlying culture emerges with each episode, as artists reveal the love of craft that keeps them committed in spite of their indie struggles. Produced by Eljay Williams, with still photography by his wife, Shari, "The Stand On Demand" is the best reason to re-up on that ovepriced Comcast subscription. www.myspace.com/thestandondemand.
