Abstract (Document Summary)

This DVD is an adrenaline rush for Boston rock lovers. Director Ben Oliver, who also directed one of the Charms' videos, does a fantastic job of combining live footage with band interviews and clips of the road woes during a 52-city tour in 2005. Group members are shown arguing in their van and occasionally at the gigs, as frustrations build up and manager Steev Riccardo has to come out and do damage control. Various fights, a flat tire, and a broken volume pedal don't help matters, but the shows are dynamic and [Ellie Vee]'s charisma pours off of the screen. "The Charms are getting bigger one fan at a time," says Oliver.
