Little Hurricane: A Trolley Show

San Diego duo performs 'Shortbread' on the MTS

By Ryan Bradford
In this episode of A Trolley Show, Anthony Catalano and Celeste Spina don’t overcompensate for their lack of bandmates by upping the volume (a typical trait of two-piece duos); instead they opt for Afghan Whig-like sleaze on the track “Shortbread.”

Hip-hop duo performs 'We All Work' on the MTS

Australians perform 'Hands' on the MTS

By Ryan Bradford

Bombay Bicycle Club: A Trolley Show

Londoners perform 'Shuffle' on the MTS

By Ryan Bradford
Ever see a puppy so cute that you just want to squeeze it until its little head comes off? Not that you’re into hurting animals, but it’s the only way your brain can handle the overloaded pleasure receptors.

Dead Confederate member performs 'Disaster Proof' on the MTS

IAmDynamite: A Trolley Show

Michigan duo performs 'Where Will We Go' aboard the MTS

By Ryan Bradford
In this episode of the A Trolley Show, the Michigan duo perform a driving rendition of “Where Will We Go.” With just a guitar and an egg shaker, these two make the tune sound like a machine gun, and singer Christopher Martin’s off-camera stare is just as unnerving.
