Video Roundup: It’s (Maybe) The End Of The World As We Know It

NASA thinks otherwise, but according to the Mesoamerican Long Count Calendar, the world will end today. Even if the Mayans couldn’t rightly predict their own demise, who knows? We may have only one more day left on Earth. If that’s the case, we’re going out swinging! All day, KEXP DJs are playing songs to soundtrack the end of the world, and we’ve collected some videos to go along with some of their apocalyptic soundtrack picks. It’s all about partying, the end of the world, and partying at the end of the world. Watch the videos below, and be sure to tune in all day while you’re preparing for our imminent demise partying!
