Doomtree’s ninth annual Blowout marathon keeps growing, this time with the addition of a movie night. On Wednesday, Dec. 11 – the night before the first of four Blowout concerts – those happy hip-hoppers will host a virtual viewing party for their documentary, “Team the Best Team.”
Fans can stream or download the movie ($2.99), and starting at 9 p.m. the members of Doomtree themselves will all press “play” at the same time and begin chiming in via Twitter to talk about the film. Yes, sort of like the commentary extras on a DVD, but in this case the commentary will be live. Hashtag: #BlowoutEve.
Issued last year on DVD and directed by the crew’s friend Chris Hadland, “Team the Best Team” captures the crew on their 2012 tour behind the “No Kings” album, including a stop at Lollapalooza in Chicago and a literally washed-out gig at the Bowery Ballroom in New York. While the documentary shows off the good and the bad of the road life, Doomtree also issued a new video for the song of the same name made up of footage from the film. At least in the video, it looks like no group has more fun being together on the road (see below).
All of Doomtree’s Blowout concerts are sold out save for the last one, Sunday night at First Ave.
