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

In this fifth episode of our 5-part Mini-Docudrama, we take an in-depth look at the unique and amazing experience that is An Under Cover Weekend. As a celebration of local music through covers, AUCW is a great opportunity to discover your new favorite local band. You will have the most fun you’ve ever had at a local show, at An Under Cover Weekend, and Christian Schaeffer says it best when he says, “I’ve seen Fleetwood Mac in concert and I have more fun seeing The Blind Eyes do Fleetwood Mac.”

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 Experience features the song “Cracks” by Last To Show First To Go 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.
