"If you seen these guys live, then you know the mayhem and drunken debauchary they incite at their shows, and this Robbie Burn's Day gig is no exception. Shot at the historic Commodore ballroom in Vancouver, it features the McKenzies "pissed tae th' gills" (as usual) and in fine form having just come off a grueling tour. There is some great footage of the lads walking around Granville street with a platter of haggis, making people try it before letting them know what the ingredients are - even a beat-cop gets to sample some.
One minor complaint I have is that there is no real insert booklet to read through. They should have included some extra info/credits and maybe even pictures but instead left it minimalistic, leaving curious fans wanting more.
Overall, if you like The Real McKenzies, and their brand of music, you will surely get a kick out of seeing this DVD."

"Great DVD! If you are a fan of the Real Mckenzies...you must buy this DVD! They cover many of their hits in this live show including "My Bonnie", "Scots Wha' Ha'e". If you don't know the Real McKenzies and think you might like crazy Scottish music that really rocks...check it out!
There is also a great music video of the song "Mainland" included as a bonus."
