Storyline

This feature documentary chronicles the last days of Dispatch, quite possibly the biggest band that never signed with a record label. In a time of upheaval in the music industry, their do-it-yourself style started a grassroots fan phenomenon that is changing the way indie bands (and record labels) do business. The band's final concert, "The Last Dispatch" drew 110,000 fans from every U.S. state and 20 foreign countries for one last free show in Boston in July of 2004. Written by Sodium Entertainment

remarkable film...
11 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

the movie's sick... whether you're a fan of the band or not, the film's about more than that - it's about 3 guys following their dream. for anyone who has ever called an artist a "sellout" for signing with a major label, this movie's for you. it's a story about integrity, about doing things your own way, and shocking the establishment. it shows the band members rehearsing together for the first time in 2 years, writing some new songs, unsure if 5,000 people are going to come out or 30,000

  • and then 110,000 people showed up the band's final show, a free


concert at the hatch shell in boston, shutting down storrow drive (the major road right off the highway through the city)! "last dispatch" is easily my favorite music documentary - i liked it even more than the ones about bands that i listen to regularly. go see it!
