NEW PROJECT: IF WE SHOUT LOUD ENOUGH | WORLD PREMIERE MAY 2013 @ the MARYLAND FILM FESTIVAL


If We Shout Loud Enough is an inside look at the Baltimore underground music scene through one of its most pivotal bands, Double Dagger.

This intimate and entertaining portrait follows the band as they complete their final tour and album, tracing the history and growth of the band and of Baltimore's underground music scene. Meet Nolen, a singer who stutters uncontrollably until he picks up the microphone; Bruce, a bassist who can make his battered instrument sound like an entire rock band; Denny, whose drumset regularly collapses under the force of his pummeling; and dozens of the fans, musicians, and artists who have catalyzed the city's music community. Along the way, the band reflects on why Baltimore has become such a vital and diverse creative breeding ground for the ethos of DIY music and art.

If We Shout Loud Enough is filled with extraordinary performance footage from Double Dagger's last tour, much of it shot from amid the sweaty bodies surging around the band. Featuring interviews with: Dan Deacon and members of Wye Oak, Future Islands, Ruiner, Thank You, and many others.
