We're Never Going Home, Against Me! (Fat Wreck Chords) Rating: NNN Rating: NNN
This tour-recapping documentary/concert film definitely succeeds in showcasing Against Me in what guitarist Tom Gabel describes as a "one-month drunk" on the road. That it is, with well over 20 songs from their 31 days touring available for viewing in between footage of the band being wooed by major labels, odd in-joke rituals and generally partying down in the key of DIY. As somebody who wasn't much of a fan beforehand, I was won over by the band's personalities, the cut of their jib and, to a lesser extent, their manner of rocking.Perhaps you will be, too.
