Don't Let Our Youth Go to Waste 1987-1991 (Plexifilm)

This 2-DVD collection of live performances and videos conceptualizes the short but influential career of slowcore trio Galaxie 500 before their breakup in 1991. The quality and sound of the live shows are often cringe-worthy, but worth watching when bassist Naomi Yang, guitarist/vocalist Dean Wareham, and drummer Damon Krukowski break from their separate orbits and collide with one another on stellar versions of Yoko Ono's "Listen, the Snow Is Falling," and Joy Division's "Ceremony."
