Storyline

5 old VW camper vans. 4 bands. 3 thousand miles. 2 weeks. 1 gloriously backwards tour. The adventure starts after a fire-fuelled final night at Austin's SXSW Music Festival, where the bands (Ben Howard, The Staves, Nathaniel Rateliff, Bear's Den) pile into their rides and head northeast. They play everywhere from bars to barns, rooms to rooftops, packing out tiny venues and wowing crowds with their unique sounds. But heavy rainstorms, multiple breakdowns, and cramped conditions remind them that to push through sometimes you need to pull together. Featuring Mumford & Sons' Ben Lovett and narrated by Gill Landry this documentary is about a modern tour, done the old fashioned way. 70 mins. Written by Anonymous

Truly Upset
8 January 2019 | by skylergjenkinsSee all my reviews

So many people recommended this documentary to me, so I bought it immediately and watched it. After watching, all I could think was, that's it?

There was almost no real substance to grab onto. They dive into part of Nathaniel Rateliff's upbringing and it's good, but it's short and we don't get anything like that with the other artists. I didn't learn anything new about the places they went, I didn't get a real sense of what it's like to be on tour

It was a glorified tour video that was made out to be more revolutionary than it really was. The first 75% of the documentary is a montage of performances and travel b-roll. The last 25% is a montage of the whole tour and a poetic narration to wrap up how the experience was so amazing for them. The end.

Bummed I bought it because I won't ever watch this again.
