Snowden, Mastodon, Hubcap City, West End Motel and the late great Jay Reatard

It's beautifully shot and has great insight into the way in which a new cultural scene inspired by the 60's garage rock has come from all the bands just continuously playing all the time in bar's,club's,their friends house party or just simply anywhere.
The live clip's of Black Lips is simply epic,nothing better then watching a band that play better when they sweet like their in Hell. It's a honest portrait of what band's can do and what not to do i.e just get stuck in the same city playing the same show's and calling that a tour.
