Horse Feathers set up for a second Show Me Shows video shoot in the City Museum's second-floor ballroom, with its regal windows and gauzy drapes, delicate like the music of Justin Ringle and his band.

Cellist Lauren Vidal, after staying the foot of her cello with blue tape, opened "Where I'll Be," from 2012's "Cynic's New Year," with four strings of warmth and a well-timed bow. On Vidal's forearm, a tattoo of the Stinky Cheese Man, bounding away from a hidden attacker, gave her strokes a certain gothic delight.

As Ringle's boot scuffed at the floor to keep time, drummer Dustin Dybvig sat out, slurping a blue Freezee, beside a shaded and tattooed hipster, both of them into the music, like us all. Ringle's voice wound around the massive pillars and slid along the floor, appealing to the senses and the imagination.

The mastermind of Horse Feathers offered a two-song performance and then some conversation. We perched on a flower bed outside the City Museum and talked about his ever-morphing recording methods, his view of musicians and rotating band members, as well as writing, his hometown, work, and, well, life.
