Video: Ra Ra Riot's "Beta Love"

Sometimes being a band's superfan pays off. David Dean Burkhart is a self-proclaimed fan of Ra Ra Riot, and created a video for the band's single and title track from their new LP, Beta Love. The band liked his video so much, they decided to make it the official music video for the infectious song.

The video is equally as smile-inducing and nauseating as the original track, featuring clips from a 1980s San Francisco Bay area dance show called "Dance Party." Some of clips sync up really well with handclaps and awesome hair tosses, I think my favorite occurs right around the 01:27 mark. The video is charmingly awkward, and serves as a great tribute to the 80s dance sound Ra Ra Riot was going for in the new album.
