"If you want to get a feeling for a typical (does that exist?) life of an indie band on the road, this is a great one. For 70 minutes, the DVD alternates between a concert song (lots of angles, plenty of views of all the band members, and no annoying camera tricks or MTV-style frantic cutting - just a good "live vibe") and a "day in the life" home video-style footage of rest stops, trips to the mall, etc. in low-key, somewhat humorous style. I've met this band in person (after a gig) and they are indeed the friendly, easygoing people you see in this DVD. Watching this, one wonders how a band is able to keep this up more than a year or two - the tedium! But clearly the joy of playing in front of an audience that's enjoying itself is the whole point. They know who they are and what they're about, and that's quite refreshing to see."
