XLR8R and Revision3 (who brought the world digg.com) are thrilled to announce the debut of XLR8R TV. Now, instead of telling you about the music, art and technology we covet, we get to show it to you.

For XLR8R TV‘s pilot episode, we catch up with French laptop punks DAT Politics as they play live at Oakland’s 21 Grand, go in the studio with Zion I, and take to the streets of San Francisco to ask people about their favorite live shows. Our aptly named editor Vivian Host acts as your fearless guide. Check it out now on revision3.com.

New episodes debut twice per month. On the first of every month, we premiere a mix of profiles, performances and other behind-the-scenes peeks at the artists and musicians found in the pages of XLR8R. Check back on April 1 for performances by Busdriver and Lindstrøm, as well as a shopping trip with Carl Craig. On the 15th of every month, XLR8R TV celebrates the art of music videos–basically, we curate our favorite ones and talk about them. Check back on March 15 for the premiere of our videos show.

XLR8R TV is currently live, so watch it now!
