In this fourth episode of our 5-part Mini-Docudrama, we take an in-depth look at the amazing community that has developed inside and around An Under Cover Weekend. In each of the last two years we have received over 40 submissions for just 10 available spots and it seems that regardless of who gets picked, all 10 bands end up being best friends in the end. The camaraderie that these bands have with each other is amazing and we are very proud to be able to provide an opportunity for these bands, who might not normally get to play together, to share the stage.
We have been trying to do an AUCW documentary for many years now and thanks to the incredibly generous work of Allison Babka, Kevin FitzGerald, and David Treadway, it is now a reality. Also, many, many thanks to The Silver Ballroom for giving us their entire bar for a day, to Bryan Sutter and Jason Stoff, for defining the AUCW brand with their lenses, and to our amazing cast who speak so highly of our little event.
An Under Cover Weekend - The Community features the song “Goodbye” by Animal Empty which you can download, along with 9 other amazing original songs from St. Louis’ finest bands, as a part of the AUCW6 UNcovered Mix Tape that we released with I Went To A Show. iwenttoashow.com/2012/08/aucw6mixtape/
This 5-part series was shot in a single day on 4 days notice and then edited in many sleepless nights. Our team is amazing.
