April Video a Day: Zach Seibert, Ballad of the Whig

Though he’s no longer a Columbia resident, having moved to New Orleans, Zach Seibert is still one of my favorite songwriters to have called Columbia home.

This song was introduced as a new one and had no real title that I knew of, but given its subject matter it is quite obviously about The Whig, an underground bar at the corner of Main and Gervais downtown where Seibert played numerous times.

Since I missed posting a video yesterday, I’ll add a second one here from the same show, of American Gun lead singer and main songwriter Todd Mathis:
