Trailer for All the Labor which will premiere at the 2013 SXSW Film Festival.
A genre-defying band forms in Austin, covers a notorious rap tune, creates its own original brand of roots music, and becomes a touring institution while striving to find its place in the challenging landscape of the music industry. The grassroots appeal and unique sound of the all but indescribable band is illuminated here with intimate performances and behind-the-scenes footage spanning nearly two decades. All the Labor captures The Gourds' enduring brotherhood with candid conversations, on-tour media interviews and reflections and insight from friends and family. The film ultimately conveys the quintet's distinctive and instantly-lovable musical magic.
