They played packed houses nightly, but they also pumped their own gas, booked their own shows and drove their own vans.
A Good Band is Easy to Kill is not a concert movie, it's a tour movie. The film runs 89 minutes and follows Beulah throughout their entire tour, from their home in San Francisco to Montreal and back again.
Tour opener John Vanderslice makes his unique presence and prespective felt throughout, as well. John's "They Won't Let Me Run" is now featured in the video section in it's entirety for the first time.
The DVD not only contains the full-length tour documentary, A Good Band is Easy to Kill, but also two hours worth of bonus material, including: seventeen full songs of Beulah in concert (see two of them at the video section), and twenty deleted scenes featuring footage from every stop on the tour.

This film would never have seen the light of day if it were not for the tireless, heroic effort of my editor, Maria Friesen. If you need a kick-ass editor for your own project and you're in Honolulu (that's where she calls home these days), you can do no better than Maria.
