Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele Plays Debut Episode of Banditos, Tours Europe

July 13, 2009  |  5:30pm
On an uncharacteristically drab Atlanta morning, we were hurting for a dose of adorable here at Paste HQ. We found that hint of sunshine in what seemed like an ordinary old press release, one that offered a link to the first episode of  YoursTru.ly's new web series Banditos, starring Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele. Sure, the band's wonderfully schmaltzy performance of "Oh, Paris!" to unsuspecting customers at San Fran's Tacqueria Cancun doesn't beat the links to WhoIsTheCutest.com that have been moseying around the office, but it's easily a close second.

Check out the first tacos-and-tunes webisode below, and keep tabs on Yours Truly for future performances by different artists:
