When I heard Hot Water Music was reuniting, I knew I couldn’t miss it. A legendary live band, it seemed a perfect opportunity to call in some favors to my friends at Metro and pull together a crew of my favorite documentary-shooting friends to capture the performance. Until a couple of days before the shoot, I assumed this was simply a passion project. Then I got a call from Var Thelin, the owner of Gainesville, FL’s No Idea Records. He thought the shoot was a good idea too and was sending someone to record high quality audio from the board for a potential record release and, if the footage turned out, possibly a DVD. Five years later, the stars aligned and the entirety of this amazing show was released on DVD (and immediately bootlegged to YouTube). The accompanying CD included cuts from both nights of HWM’s performance but the DVD is uncut and straight through- just as I saw it from the pit. This was one of those rare occasions where a passion project turned into a full on major release and I am absolutely proud to have been a part of Hot Water Music’s legacy in the scene.
