I was pleasantly surprised to find that my local video store had a copy of this. You should check it out, it's funny as hell. Its done in the same vein as Waiting for Guffman, except about jambands so we can all relate very well. You'll definitely recognize personalities you've met at shows or fetis. Plus it's got some pretty jammin and funny ass music.

Best scene...after that bartender is talkin' shit about Jerry. What's the character...the guitar player? Nice! I love violent hippies with a purpose.

I can't wait to see this movie....especially the bartender scene! I grew up with that dude in the Sierra....he always had the most tripped out film ideas (similar to Mike) and he gets punched out by him? Awesome. Does anyone have a copy of Hobie Chow??
