This new live release, which was filmed at The Dome in Brighton, England, showcases many of this act’s sturdy songs and thus exemplifies its staying power.

title: Jerry Garcia Band - Live At Shoreline function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Rhino Home Video MPAA rating: NR starring: Jerry Garcia DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Three and a Half Stars reviewed by: Jeff Fish What we have here is a band filling a void. On September 1, 1990, the Grateful Dead were to play a show at the Shoreline Amphitheatre (Mountain View, CA), but in July of that year, Brent Mydland (keyboardist for the Grateful Dead) unexpectedly passed away. Rather than cancel the gig, Jerry Garcia brought his band to play at Shoreline. Watching this reminds me of why I love Jerry’s music so much. It’s not all about technique or how much of a virtuoso you are with your instrument, but rather about how passionately and introspectively you can play. If you want to watch a band play with absolute perfection, then this isn’t the disc for you, but if you want to see how the creative process works ...

title: Danzig: Il Demonio Nera function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Eviliv9 MPAA rating: NR starring: Danzig DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Dan MacIntosh Glenn Danzig is the former vocalist for the hardcore band The Misfits, and he has been making shock rock since the late ‘70s. These days, his music falls somewhere between black metal and Marilyn Manson. Thus his music videos are a little bit like mini-horror movies. The big trouble with such an out-there style, however, is that its subject matter isn’t exactly the sort of soft sell sex usually presented on MTV. Instead, it’s a little bit like Ozzy Osbourne, if the Ozz were actually truly frightening and taken seriously.

title: Twisted Sister: Live at Wacken - The Reunion function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Eagle Vision MPAA rating: NR starring: Twisted Sister DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Two Stars sound/picture rating: Three Stars reviewed by: Dan MacIntosh At one memorable point here, Twisted Sister singer Dee Snider compliments his Wacken, Germany audience -- and the community of heavy metal fans in general -- on their steadfast loyalty. But in order to slog though this double-sided, video/audio disc, you’d have to be either a Twisted Sister diehard, a bad heavy metal junkie, or just plain hard up for entertainment. Calling this project “entertainment,” in fact, may be far too kind a word for it. Rather, this disc offers a slightly better way to kill time than, say, suicide or self-mutilation. But even if you chose “Live At Wacken” over your favorite method of violent self-destruction, you might still end up punishing yourself over such a poor decision. Simply ending it all might be a better move than putting ...

title: Cake Boy function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Kung Fu Films MPAA rating: NR starring: Warren Fitzgerald, Bob Odenkirk, Pam Gridley, Sheila Platte DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture rating: Three Stars reviewed by: Dan MacIntosh “Cake Boy” is an odd little punk rock film. It tells the ironic story of Selwyn (played by Warren Fitzgerald of The Vandals), who is a master at decorating cakes for a creepy little exotic cake shop. But the art of forming nipples on the tops of freaky desserts is not a fulfilling career choice, so go figure. Furthermore, Selwyn’s girlfriend takes out all her physical aggression upon this poor little chef. Selwyn decides to leave his mean girl and dead end job behind to take up a new life as a punk rock roadie. But this plan soon proves the truism that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. Ultimately, this is the story of Selwyn’s various trials and errors, before he finally ...
