"Live/Raw is chocked full of concert footage from 3 different venues. It also features a music video, a hilarious Cribs spoof, a photo gallery, and even an Easter Egg. It's perfect for any fan of live rock music. Of course, the DVD is a must-have for fans of the Lovehammers - especially if you haven't had a chance to see the band live and have been reading all the
enthusiastic reviews from concert-goers.
Intro / Eyes Can't See video - 4 minutes
The video was recently nominated for Best Music Video by the Midwest Ind. Film Festival.
Metro - 14 minutes
3 song set - This Town, Straight As An Arrow, The Tunnel
an ecstatic crowd, upbeat
Double Door - 20 minutes
5 songs - Ultrasound, The Tunnel, Real Man, Call of Distress, Sky is Falling
This concert brings the rawness to the DVD in the sense that it has much more of a "bite" to it - a kind of ferocity.
Schubas - 67 minutes
14 songs - The Tunnel, Bulletholes, Better Off Walk Away, Yes It Do, Eyes Can't See, Summertime In the City, Throw My Head, This Town, Into the Deep End, Call of Distress, Wait for No One, Give It Up, Straight As An Arrow, Low-Life Insurance (Let's Get Wasted)
The entire set is acoustic. Probably the biggest treat for the die-hard Lovehammers fan, because it is insightful. You get to hear the stories behind the songs. There's some great banter amongst the band and also between the band and the crowd.
Cribs - Tour of the famous/infamous Hammerhouse by Bobby & Dino Kourelis - the band's drummer and bassist. 10 minutes
Easter Egg - See footage of singer Marty Casey's "first band". To access it scroll until you highlight the symbol above "Band Credits" (looks like backwards question mark). Hit Enter then DVD menu button.
A Must-Have for Any Lovehammers Fan!

"This DVD is, as the title proclaims, RAW. It's not supposed to be stylish and fluffy pop tripe. It's down and dirty rock and roll the way God intended. And nobody does gut-wrenching powerful rock and roll like Lovehammers.
Marty, Dino, Bobby, and Billy tear it up on stage in true Lovehammers style through three riveting sets at three different venues: Metro, Double Door, and Schubas. The Schubas set is especially amazing because it's a sort of "unplugged" type of performance, and fans watching the DVD will love to hear what the band has to say during the show!
The previous review covered all the sections in wonderful detail, so I will simply add that, as a Lovehammers fan, I can't say enough great things about this DVD. If you enjoy hard rock and energetic performances, you will not be disappointed in this gem."
MUST HAVE DVD for MARTY CASEY/LOVEHAMMER fans!
