Every week XLR8R TV goes behind the scenes with the musicians, artists and scenes covered in the pages of XLR8R. Since our debut episode in March 2007, we've gone go-karting with Modeselektor, country music shopping with Devin the Dude, schooled you in Dubstep and Detroit Ghettotech, given pro tips on home music recording, answered love letters with Chromeo, set up an art show with Maya Hayuk and taken you to our favorite underground spots -- like an ex-police mobile command unit turned veggie-oil powered rock venue.
