The Dawn Collectiv, who self proclaim they are 'a collective of artists who share a likeminded dreams and aspirations' - have put together a sweet video that can be used to explain the madness that was The Upbeats 'Primitive Techniques' Album tour. This particular video came from the Christchurch event that was put on by Bass Freaks. Nice work all involved.
