OK, This is Scary

Tribute: A Rockumentary

I caught the last 20 or 30 minutes of this film last night on the Independent Film Channel. My feelings about the idea of tribute bands range from annoyed to amused, and they were certainly reinforced by what I saw in this film. The effect is similar to that of watching a particularly juicy COPS episode, one with lots of slurring, stumbling drunk guys and the women who alternately love them and hit them with jack handles.

It's bad enough that someone would want to play in a tribute band, but why, why, why would anyone pay to see one? This phenomenon should be struck solidly on the back of the head and left in a ditch to die.
