Dave Matthews Band
What sets the Dave Matthews Band apart from other jam-inclined festival veterans is the solid foundation of catchy songs upon which all their instrumental explorations lie. Fans appreciate the way Matthews' songs change from one performance to another, as he always infuses the hook-packed structure of their favorite songs with fresh improvisational jams. His heartfelt singing layers unpredictable (but memorable) melodies on top of bouncy chords that seem to fit together effortlessly - sort of like rubber jigsaw puzzle pieces. Matthews also subtly incorporates some Latin rhythms and world fusion into his bouncy jam rock/pop, which gives his songs more sonic texture and extra dimension. With such elements at his disposal, Matthews and his band can confidently take risks playing live, which tends to make his performances (and bootlegs) a little more interesting than his polished and somewhat harmless studio recordings. 2003's Some Devil is Matthews' first solo outing.

Runtime: 1 hr 36 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. That approach was clearly on display on January 1st, 2016 as the band limited capacity of the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, CO to an intimate group of super fans for a truly special evening. The band premiered an archival documentary film and followed it up with a Storytellers style performance. They took time in between tracks to dig deeply into the song writing and lyrical process, share stories of the tune’s origins and crack jokes in classic UM fashion. This is a rare, behind the curtain look at the true nature of the band to be equally enjoyed by the die-hard fan and newbie alike. UM is Musicianship for the Masses.
Single Video Theory
Runtime: 45 minSingle Video Theory is a music documentary directed by Mark Pellington that follows the making of Yield, the fifth album by the American alternative rock band Pearl Jam. The film was shot in 16mm film over three days in November 1997 in downtown Seattle. It features interviews with the band members and behind-the-scenes footage of the band's rehearsal sessions for its shows opening for The Rolling Stones. The documentary illustrates how the band began to widen the songwriting responsibilities of its members, with bassist Jeff Ament credited with writing "Pilate" and "Low Light", and guitarist Mike McCready taking part in writing "Given to Fly" with vocalist Eddie Vedder. It was the first insight into the band's inner workings of its recording sessions, which had previously been shielded from the public.
