Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band - Documentary, Pre-Order, and Tour Dates
With one critically acclaimed record under their belt and a highly anticipated sophomore album Outer South on its way (due Cinco de Mayo), Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band are set to release "One of My Kind" on April 15, a documentary that will give fans a behind-the-scenes look at the band's journey over the past year and a half. Made by the band's guitar-tech Phil Schaffart and presented by Causecast, "One of My Kind" traces the group's ever-growing bond as friends and collaborators. "One of My Kind" takes viewers on a 60-minute musical journey including: footage from Tepoztlán, Mexico, where they recorded their first album, their worldwide tour in 2008, and the making of Outer South in El Paso, TX.
The film will be available as a free stream or HD download exclusively on Causecast.org, IFC.com, conoroberst.com, mergerecords.com, and wichita-recordings.com. Additionally, Causecast.org partner sites The Huffington Post and Myspace IMPACT will each feature exclusive outtakes, trailers and live acoustic performances from the film.
