Welcome to Our Movie: The Bottle Rockets Live & In Person
We're excited to premiere this full-length concert film.
In 2009, a live show by iconic Midwestern rock band The Bottle Rockets was filmed with the intention of releasing it as a live concert movie. As the footage moved through post-production, it transformed into a more ambitious project that featured a documentary. Over six years in development, Welcome To Our Movie: The Bottle Rockets Live & In Person is at last released! The incendiary live footage includes time-honored, fan-favorite songs, as well as the first performances of songs from The Bottle Rockets’ 2009 Bloodshot Records album Lean Forward. The documentary portions consist of engaging interviews with the band and lyricist Scott Taylor, incorporating rare memorabilia and personal archives from their earliest years and throughout their career. Directed and co-produced by John Boston, Welcome To Our Movie showcases an American rock-n-roll band performing at fighting weight and telling their unlikely success story.
