Most music documentaries chronicle the rise and fall of a legend; perhaps a pop diva or troubled guitarist. All the Labor, on the other hand, follows the life of a band: five individuals within a larger collective, doing what they love.
For two decades, The Gourds have played their rock/folk/country tunes, gathered cult listeners and always managed to float just under the radar of mainstream success. This is exactly where they like it. Through a mash up of interviews, live performances and scraps of footage, this documentary will have your foot tapping and you heart laughing. These fathers, husbands and regular guys have bonded with their instruments and friends, playing music for the love of playing.
