Outside Grey Lady with Haim and Jorma Taccone

HAIM is blowing up in the music world, having already bumped over Justin Timberlake on the UK album charts with their debut Days Are Gone (US Billboard numbers will be available later today). The band is also included on the soundtrack to the unneeded remake of Stephen King’s Carrie.

Over the summer, the Los Angeles sisters hit the streets of the Lower East Side to film a music video for current Top 40 ear worm, “The Wire.” The plot of the song revolves around three breakups in very public places, so that’s exactly what the short portrays.

The opening itself heavily features scenes shot at Grey Lady, where we see one sister breaking up with comedy-songster Jorma Taccone (Lonely Island). Sara D. Roosevelt Park also stars as another neighborhood location to split with you significant other.

And that cavernous performance you see toward the end is actually in the dungeon of Fontana’s on Eldridge Street.
