Why Are We Doing This In Front Of People? Octagrape Tour Documentary
"Why Are We Doing This in Front of People?" is a feature length film that follows San Diego based noise garage psychonauts Octagrape as they hit the road, encountering friends, fans, fellow travelers, disinterested witnesses, strange times, open landscapes, Tim Hortons, bad directions and a persistent question: Why are we doing this?
Filmed in Chicago, Detroit, Montreal, Northampton, Providence, Brooklyn, Jersey City, New York and San Diego. Featuring performances by Octagrape, Major Stars, Bugs and Rats, Fly Ashtray, Silk Purse, Mark Shippy & Maigin Blank, Porn Persons, William Sides Atari Party, Byron Coley & The Cawl, Complete and Dust Ruffles.
It's a road movie, a music movie, a strange funny road music movie about the quixotic life of music. It will either inspire you to tour the world or to never leave home.
