VIDEO: An Under Cover Weekend – The Showmanship (Part 3 of 5)

In this third episode of our 5-part Mini-Docudrama, we take an in-depth look at the amazing display of showmanship that comes from each annual cast of An Under Cover Weekend. By the end of AUCW6 we will have featured 79 performances with no tributes repeated — some of which have gone down in history as being some of the most amazing sets St. Louis has ever seen. Nearly every year, AUCW makes it on to some publications best moments of the previous year list and in 2009, three sets from AUCW3 comprised 30% of The Riverfront Times’ Best Nine Moments of The Year. We are so proud to feature such amazing local talent and are incredibly flattered by the lengths that these bands go to perform at An Under Cover Weekend!

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 Showmanship features the song “Alone” by Aquitaine 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.
