WATCH: Jay Brannan’s “Rob Me Blind”

Folkie gay Jay Brannan released the video for his third single which is also the title track of his latest album, Rob Me Blind. Brannan is looking for love in an elevator in this tender video that pits him and a handsome stranger in confined spaces. A five minute ride up to the eighth floor seems like forever (or at least feels like our building), but Brannan’s fantasies play out as people get off and on and the doors open to reveal a vignette of the happy couple.

Brannan will likely perform the tune when he returns to Dallas this August to play Sons of Hermann Hall.

Watch the video after the jump.

Concert Notice: Jay Brannan returns to play Sons of Hermann Hall this August

I had a hint of this already, but the official word is out that gay singer-songwriter Jay Brannan will make his return to Dallas this summer. Upon release of his latest album Rob Me Blind this week, the folkster will hit the road in July, making his way to town August 13. He’ll play at the Sons of Hermann Hall (yes!) in Deep Ellum and is another notch in Tactics Productions’ increasingly impressive roster of concert bookings with some LGBT-friendly approach on the side. Props to those guys.

The last time we saw Brannan here was at The Loft in late 2010.

Brannan posted this video on release day yesterday and even gave a live performance of the song “The State of Music.” Check it after the jump.
