VIDEO: An Under Cover Weekend – The Beginning (Part 1 of 5)

In this first episode of our 5-part Mini-Docudrama, we take an in-depth look at what An Under Cover Weekend is and how it came to be. You see, all of the people involved in AUCW, from the organizers to the photographers to the bands to the fans, have a story to tell — this is the beginning of that story.

The Beginning: An Under Cover Weekend from Mike Tomko on Vimeo.

We have been trying to do an AUCW documentary for many years now and thanks to the incredibly generous work of Allison Babka, Kevin FitzGerald, and David Treadway, it is now a reality. Also, many, many thanks to The Silver Ballroom for giving us their entire bar for a day, to Bryan Sutter and Jason Stoff for defining the AUCW brand with their lenses, and to our amazing cast who speak so highly of our little event.

An Under Cover Weekend – The Beginning features the song “All We’ve Got” by Via Dove which you can download, along with 9 other amazing original songs from St. Louis’ finest bands, as a part of the AUCW6 UNcovered Mix Tape that we released with I Went To A Show.

This 5-part series was shot in a single day on 4 days notice and then edited in many sleepless nights. Our team is amazing.
