Big Harp, 'Everybody Pays' -- Video of the DayArtist: Big HarpVideo: 'Everybody Pays'Highlight: "The video was shot in and around Yermo, Calif. in the middle of the Mojave desert," bassist/singer Stefanie Drootin-Senseney tells Spinner. "The town is right next to an old ghost town, Calico, that's been converted into a theme park. It was interesting that Calico, the 'fake' town, was restored and bustling with tourists while Yermo, the 'real' one, was filled with derelict buildings and abandoned furniture and seemed to be on the verge of becoming a ghost town itself. Walking through the ruins of old gas stations and stores was eerie, but the atmosphere in the '50s diner couldn't have been more different. Everyone there was warm and friendly, and they made a mean ham and cheese."
