This movie rocks!
27 September 2007 | by (Oakland,CA) – See all my reviews

I think this movie is great. It takes a local music scene in an out-of-the way place, Tuscon, Arizona, and shows you over several decades how without any established independent venues, a grass-roots music culture grows from house parties and ultimately (at least when this film ends) produces an internationally known and awesome band, Calexico. The beauty of this film is in the incredible archival footage from the past thirty years. It is a documentarian's dream come true to have the source material available to show the viewer what it was really like to see these bands play in people's houses and in ridiculously small venues, rather than having to rely on participant's memories of what is was like. The film has a good mix of interviews with musicians and fans of the Tuscon scene to supplement the archival images. Is Tuscon unique or was this happening in dozens of other small cities across America? It most likely did occur in similar ways in other places, but lucky for us, because of this movie, we get to see how it happened in Tuscon with some totally rockin' music.
