The Spears:: Live: DVD

Killer-looking video with superior sound from this Tampa hardcore outfit. Featuring members of Down By Law and Pink Lincolns, so you know that it is full throttle from start to finish. Footage consists of three recent shows that are each filmed from a different perspective, so nothing gets stale. The first show is from a St. Petersburg New Year’s Eve show in 2010 and you can see the crowd getting involved. The next segment was filmed at a local radio station. The sound is really top notch here, maybe because the drums are actually isolated in a studio environment. The last piece is two newer songs and it’s a bit more upfront on the band at a smaller venue. Very well put together, great songs, and two bonus covers of Stiff Little Fingers and The Plasmatics. You need this on your shelf. (Self-released)
