Austin to Boston

5 old VW camper vans. 4 bands. 3 thousand miles. 2 weeks. 1 gloriously backwards tour. The adventure starts after a fire-fuelled final night at Austin’s SXSW Music Festival, where the bands (Ben Howard, The Staves, Nathaniel Rateliff, Bear’s Den) pile into their rides and head northeast. They play everywhere from bars to barns, rooms to rooftops, packing out tiny venues and wowing crowds with their unique sounds. But heavy rainstorms, multiple breakdowns, and cramped conditions remind them that to push through sometimes you need to pull together. Featuring Mumford & Sons’ Ben Lovett and narrated by Gill Landry this documentary is about a modern tour, done the old fashioned way.

Just announced by Communion Music, a documentary called Austin to Boston featuring Ben Howard, The Staves, Nathaniel Rateliff and Bear’s Den.  The footage used in the film is from a tour done with the artists back in 2012.  The trailer has been online for the past year, but is starting to be talked about because it is going to be screened at film festivals soon.

Looking forward to trying to see it.  Hopefully it will be released online through iTunes, Netflix or other types of video on demand services.
