It pretty much sucked six ways to Sunday when the Boston Phoenix ceased operations back in March. But one weird silver lining in all that nonsense is that it freed up the magazine’s photo editor Janice Checchio to blossom as a Boston music video starlet.
After taking it like a champ in Herra Terra’s “Reason To Lose It” video, which was released a week after we all lost our Phoenix jobs, Checchio now returns as the main focus in “Canoe,” a new clip from Boston post-shoegazers SOCCER MOM.
And yes, after getting all dirtied up in the big bad city, she finds herself in a canoe. In the woods.
It’s quite a visual piece, even if we don’t get a Dan Parlin cameo.
