How To Grow A Band
Runtime: 1 hr 29 minThis intimate documentary follows mandolin virtuoso (and MacArthur Foundation “Genius”) Chris Thile through a turning point in his life and musical career.

Live at the All Good Music Festival 2011
Runtime: 1 hr 46 minFrom modest beginnings in a Buffalo basement over two decades ago to today’s multifaceted success, the members of moe. have never lost sight of the earnest, elemental goals that they aspired to from their very first show: to deliver honest, heartfelt music and to ensure the audience has a good time. Considerate and conscientious in their actions and decision-making, moe.’s refreshingly unpretentious attitude has won them a devoted legion of dedicated fans (ranging from seasoned concert-goers to eager young newcomers) and has given rise to a thriving cottage industry – a self-contained nation-state in which the band and their audience live as equals, thriving on a reciprocal appreciation rare in today’s increasingly fragmented musical landscape. 2010 marks the twentieth anniversary of moe.’s frontline of Rob Derhak (bass, vocals), Chuck Garvey (guitar, vocals), and Al Schnier (guitar, keyboards, vocals), who continue to perform together with the addition of drummer Vinnie Amico and percussionist and multi-instrumentalist Jim Loughlin. Keeping a consistent lineup intact and productive over two decades is no small feat. moe.’s saga is made all the more remarkable because they have consistently done so on their own terms, as independent artists who actively manage their own affairs while staying well ahead of industry and technological developments, including successfully self-releasing their own music and offering instant on-site digital concert recordings at their shows.
Live at Red Rocks: Day 3
Runtime: 1 hr 11 minFrom the opening note of "Wondering" all the way through to the set closing "Conrad," the band owned the opportunity. Sandwiched in between the opener and a divine "C. Brown," a very leggy "Surprise Valley" overwhelmed the crowd with an almost-anthemic presence. "Kiss the mountain air we breathe" sounds good standing anywhere, but beneath "ship" and "Creation" rocks it evoked magic. All weekend the boys in the band had worn smiling faces, but early in the day it was easy to see that Sunday "Funday" was going to be enchanting.
Words can difficultly describe the bands energy on this last day. As the band masterfully wielded a "Bowlegged Woman" into "Lawyers, Guns and Money," it started to become apparent that the second set would be no ordinary picnic. Call them fan favorites, Halloween treats, illustrious tour gems, whatever you want, but don't expect to hear "Mama Told Me Not to Come," "Knocking Around the Zoo" and "Walk On" in consecutive order too often. The only seemingly botched moment in the whole afternoon was a "Guilded Splinters" that by most standards was still great but just seemed to be lost for a bit before being revitalized by some

Live at the Fillmore Auditorium
Runtime: 3 hr 25 minUmphrey's McGee continue to defy convention with their ferocious live shows, never-ending catalogue, and innovative approach to all facets of the music industry. New Year’s Eve 2015 highlights that approach as the band performed three marathon sets at the famed Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, CO. UM’s New Year’s performances are synonymous with nonstop fun and this one was no different as the band was joined by longtime special guest horn section (Mad Dog and his Filthy Little Secret) throughout the night. With a mixture of old staples, multiple debuts, and classic covers, this performance is simply not to be missed. The set list goes on and on with highlights including “No Diablo,” “Women, Wine and Song,” “Bad Friday,” and the debut of R. Kelly’s “Ignition,” because hey, why not? Settle in and prepare yourself.
UM is Musicianship for the Masses.
Live At First Avenue
Trampled By Turtles
Runtime: 1 hr 14 minWith six albums to their credit and a word-of-mouth reputation that draws legions of die-hard fans to their must-see-to-believe live shows, Minnesota roots music hybrid Trampled by Turtles finally release their first ever, highly anticipated live concert recording – Live at First Avenue. Captured over 3 sold-out nights at the legendary Minneapolis rock venue, First Avenue, celebrating TBT's 10th Anniversary in 2013, this video features songs from all six of Trampled by Turtles' albums, including fan favorites like “Codeine”, "Wait So Long" "Midnight on the Interstate" and TBT's version of the Pixies’ classic, “Where is My Mind?”. While they never set out to be a “bluegrass” band, the band employs the same time-honored tools of the trade – guitar, acoustic bass, banjo, mandolin and fiddle – as their ‘grass-fed country cousins'. But their soul-deep differences in influences, attitude and attack, from their quicksilver, deadly accurate picking to their lonesome, hauntingly spare ballads, make for a very different musical beast indeed.
