The Ready Set will perform at the Epicentre in Mira Mesa on Saturday. Their debut studio album, I’m Alive, I’m Dreaming, which was released in March -- with it's first single, "Love Like Woe” -- becoming an instant hit.
What began as a project for Jordan Witzigreuter (vocals and drummer) has turned out to be a mainstay on the music scene. Witzigreuter is the Ready Set -- there aren’t any other members in the band. The singer/songwriter has written for and performed with Fall Out Boy, Never Shout Never and Ryan Cabrera.
The album debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, powered by the “Love Like Woe” pop/hip-hop influenced dance track. The song has garnered The Ready Set many fans, including the UCSD Men’s Soccer Team, whose love for the track inspired a very cleverly made video that has gone viral on YouTube:
The handsome jocks definitely showed their love and appreciation for the song, filming footage while in multiple locations. The clip starts in a hotel room and then shows the team on a nearly empty airplane, impressively lip-syncing the opening verse. Watching the other passengers, who aren’t disturbed by the intrusion, is hilarious. The carrot-top and sunglass-wearer were the comical personalities in the video. The editing is great, and the result is quite impressive.
The Ready Set absolutely approves of the video -- Witzigreuter retweeted the video link on Nov. 10 to his followers.
