Storyline

Towncraft looks at the importance of local scenes in a changing music world and the exciting music that emerges from smaller cities across the country when communities come together. Much like in Austin, Seattle, Athens and Chapel Hill, an underground-Rock scene emerged in Little Rock in the late 80s and has served as a vibrant center of the city's culture ever since. Unlike other towns, Little Rock's scene was composed almost entirely of kids. 14-18 year-olds were booking their own shows, starting record labels, opening record stores and playing with large national acts. The film focuses on the roots of the Little Rock scene, how it changed the lives of those involved, the enormous DIY ethos that has shaped the scene for the past 20 years and how the scene continues to thrive as pioneers hit their mid-30s.

America at its best
20 July 2007 | by gcobb3See all my reviews

Still undecided on what to cook for a hot holiday weekend? Try a little Towncraft. It is bound to satisfy even the most particular of pallets.

This movie is a living documentation of America it her best. Anyone can do this, the recipe is simple. Take whatever resources you have, add heart, soul, trust, compadres, and hard work.

Stir briskly over hot humid summers and you get Towncraft. Tasty.

This movie shows us all that our lives are simply to short to not take a little time to live and love while walking around this rock. Matson takes a personal approach to a topic close to him and, more than likely, all of us. Every town had a "scene". That said, every town doesn't generate band after quality band that continually support each other while understanding the context in which their art will be viewed.
