Big Easy Express
The joy of music is gloriously depicted in the documentary Big Easy Express. Mumford & Sons, Old Crow Medicine Show and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes board a train and take their music from San Francisco to New Orleans. The music they play for each other on the train, is as good as the actual performances. My favorite was The Austin High School marching band playing with Mumford & Sons at SXSW. The energy in those kids was electric. Be sure to watch the deleted scenes on the DVD. The performances are stunning.
