No Room For Rock Stars

I’m a big music fan, but not really of the bands that normally play The Vans Warped Tour. That said, I’m up for a music doc. At HotDocs last night I took in “No Room For Rock Stars“, a doc made following the tour from city to city across North America. It’s not focused on the performances, but the personalities — and the wide spectrum of personalities. It also follows around a group of kids in a band who just want a chance to be on the bill. They were selling CDs to people waiting in line to get into the festival – at every tour stop.

Overall, I loved it. It was highly entertaining and well produced: 4/5
