The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years
Ron Howard tackles the Beatles
starstarstar
Film Review  September 9, 2016, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Eight Days a Week is an apt title for this Ron Howard-directed documentary about the early years of the Fab Four, essentially 1962-1966. At first a gas for the young moptops, performing live in the face of unchecked Beatlemania eventually caused the band to quit touring and focus on creating studio albums..."

Some Parts of the World Pt. 7
BettySoo's European tour winds to a close
DAILY Music  June 20, 2011, by BettySoo
"...One of my favorite aspects of touring is finding I have an extended family all over the world. In Austin, musicians are really fortunate to have a community among ourselves that supports and celebrates one another, as well as a general city population who loves the local music scene, in a way I haven’t seen in other music centers in the U.S...."

Tommy's Honour
Lacking biopic on the game of golf

Film Review  April 14, 2017, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...This film tells a story about Old Tom Morris (Mullan), the greenskeeper at St. Andrews who’s responsible for establishing many of the game’s standards as well as making the golf club’s balls and irons, and his son Tommy Morris (Lowden), a wiz whose golf skills outshine his father’s to eventually become one of the first touring golfers who helped popularize the sport..."

Spectre
Spectre brings the spectacle, but it lacks a soul

Film Review  November 6, 2015, by Josh Kupecki
"...Unfortunately, the film never advances past that giddy high. Bond extracts from that man a ring engraved with an octopus symbol (not Hydra, btw), which leads him on a MacGuffin-fueled travelogue to Rome (Monica Bellucci), and then to Austria (Léa Seydoux), with an extended stay in Morocco, touring and destroying enemy strongholds and henchmen who call back to classic Bond tropes (Dave Bautista has Oddjob’s style, but Jaws’ strength!)..."

Being Evel
Evel Knievel rides again in this retrospective doc
starstarstar
Film Review  August 21, 2015, by Marc Savlov
"...Junge traces “the last gladiator”’s hardscrabble roots amidst the coal-mining, alcohol, and fisticuffs of Butte, Mont., to his early deal with Honda motorcycles, which led him to touring the country performing risky tricks for crowds that cheered for the failures as much as they did for his triumphs. That the man in the red-white-and-blue jumpsuit was a narcissistic egomaniac with some serious anger and booze issues is something Being Knievel makes abundantly clear through interviews with his longtime wife Linda and the various outsized characters who orbited his mercurial world..."

Arthouse comedy amuses yet disappoints.

Film Review  September 5, 2014, by Kimberley Jones
"...British journalist Jon Ronson and co-writer Peter Straughan have fancifully adapted Ronson’s memoir about touring with the real-life performance artist Frank Sidebottom, né Chris Sievey (the film’s fake head is a near replica of Sidebottom’s distinctive dome). But the screenwriters have curiously sanded down Ronson’s own sharp-witted, terrifically dyspeptic public persona..."

Atmosphere's Slug isn't dead from tequila poisoning yet

Shut Up and Sing
The Dixie Chicks' struggle with the conflicting demands of art and commerce as portrayed in this documentary shows that they're still not ready to make nice.
starstarstarhalfstar
Film Review  November 17, 2006, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Thus began a three-year period during which the Chicks were renounced by hordes of red-state fans who were encouraged to trash their records. Instead of a passing event, the incident sparked years of fallout, during which the band who, up until that point had been the bestselling female group in history, was subject to death threats, hate mail, and nonexistent record sales and touring opportunities..."

Film Review  October 10, 1997, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...A film director (Messica) wants to make a movie about war based on the Spanish novelist Juan Goytisolo's claim that “the history of the 1990s in Europe is a rehearsal, with slight symphonic variations, of the cowardice and chaos of the 1930s.” The film director's daughter, her cousin, and the family's Arab maid are preparing to go to Sarajevo to put on a production of Alfred de Musset's One Must Not Play at Love. The trip proves disastrous as the touring literati are captured, tortured, and forced to dig their own graves..."

Film Review  July 4, 1997, by Russell Smith
"...This second feature by William Dear (Angels in the Outfield) has its flaws, but as an example of adolescent male fantasies writ large it approaches brilliance. Broadly based on true boyhood experiences of award-winning nature documentarian Mark Stouffer (played here by Devon Sawa), Wild America chronicles a summer in the late Sixties when he and brothers Marshall (Jonathan Taylor Thomas of the Home Improvement TV series) and Marty (Scott Bairstow) spent several weeks touring the country and filming threatened animal species in their natural habitats..."

Film Review  September 17, 1993, by Robert Faires
"...Always attired in oversized outfits, he's an appealingly goofy picture of the talker who isn't as big a man as he thinks. Though considerably more subdued, Durning and Grey give an old-fashioned sparkle to their eccentrics, and the time with them is a metaphysical delight, with musings on the souls of numbers and touring the “City of the World” display, a model train-size layout of a town depicting scenes from Stone's life..."

Film Review  June 7, 1991, by Marjorie Baumgarten

"...The members of Kumbia Queers met by chance eight years ago at a DIY festival in Buenos Aires. The kismet meeting of the six self-described “punk, roller girls” from Argentina and México blossomed into a world-touring band that’s "reinterpreting Latin American heart-aching" machismo, politics, and fun...."

Texas Rollergirls season firming up

"...With the first bouts of the season behind them, the Texas Rollergirls are putting the 2008 season together, and fans are filling up their calendars for the first Sunday of every month (check back soon for the touring Texecutioner's season). First up will be the April 6 event, which could contain one of the most interesting matchups of the season. The Hotrod Honeys came out of their March 2 rematch with the champion Hell Marys with a squeaker win: this time, they'll be facing the Hustlers, whose new-look team has had a month to shake off their inaugural loss to the Honky Tonk Heartbreakers. When it comes to Texas hospitality, it looks like Austin's own are trying to set up their own Red River Rivalry..."

Assessing Austin's Class of '96
Music Story  December 27, 1996, by Andy Langer
"...Tuned In or Out? Nobody can testify to the power of radio better than the Butthole Surfers. After 15 years and 12 albums, the Surfers went into 1996 with an average but diehard touring fan base and a scrapbook of press clippings that went well beyond what their album sales might have indicated. Their first album for Capitol, 1993's Independent Worm Saloon, had sold in the low six-figure range and spawned one moderately successful alternative radio hit, "Who Was in My Room Last Night." Still, no one anticipated "Pepper."..."

How Green Is the Music?
Festivals, bands, and musicians seek environmental harmony
News Story  April 19, 2007, by Daniel Mottola
"...Last October, Thom Yorke, frontman for the British band Radiohead, told the UK's Guardian newspaper he would "consider refusing to tour on environmental grounds, if nothing started happening to change the way the touring operates." He explained, "Some of our best ever shows have been in the U.S., but there's 80,000 people there and they've all been sitting in traffic jams for five or six hours with their engines running to get there, which is bollocks." Yorke, who has become an impassioned and articulate advocate for greenhouse-gas limits in the United Kingdom, acknowledged that playing live is a "necessary part of what I do," but he's also well aware of the "ridiculous consumption of energy" required to tour...."
