Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Every once and a while we pretend like we want to learn things and watch documentaries, but only if they're available for free somewhere. Luckily, we just found a new one to watch, and this one involves a band we've never heard of (One-Eyed Doll), doing things we never figured bands did (they eat?).

We honestly don't really understand what's even going on here, but look, there is a girl with funny makeup and plenty of rock and roll and costumes. That should be entertaining for an hour and half, right? It's like watching Trekkies, only substitute the nerds with goth-punk-rockers.

We like being exposed to new things, and this documentary has most certainly shined some lights on the trials and tribulations of a touring goth-punk band. (See indie rockers? It's not just you whining about stuff in tour documentaries.) If you can't get through the whole thing, go ahead and skip to the 29-minute mark, in which the drummer says something absolutely brilliant. Oh, another spoiler alert: Don't miss the first two and a half minutes or so when we discover that there's another drummer out there named Number Three. What are the chances?

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
