Usually the Midnight Movie has a subject that's tied to Los Angeles in some way, even faintly. Sometimes it's a local band from days gone by, or a short film, or even a trailer.

Enjoy this moving and interesting video that seems to be giving the Aussie band Sick Puppies, whose music is featured here, a huge burst of popularity down under, as well as all over the web and YouTube.
