You will love the documentary if you like the band
If you stumbled upon The Power of Salad and Milkshakes then probably you know Lightning Bolt. If you don't, check their music first- their noisy, loud and aggressive music may not suit everyone. However, it's great music with a purpose- not just shallow and senseless noise. But I won't bother you with their music for now- let's focus on the documentary.
This documentary follows Lightning Bolt on the road, with cuts from various gigs from their tour. It's great as a music DVD, as we can see the band and their raw energy on stage. Their live shows can't be compared to their records- as the band usually plays on small venues, not on a stage but at floor level and with the audience right next to them (and very loud). This documentary lets us feel some of that amazing experience.
Also, we get to know other facts and stories from the band. Stuff that only fans could care. That's why this documentary it's suitable for fans only. Otherwise, you will find this pointless, boring, and above anything, loud and noisy. However, if you like Lightning Bolt, you should see this right now- will make you love the band even more.
