Outroads – 24 gigs in 36 hours

In January 2010 OUTROADS attempted to play 24 Gigs In 36 Hours across their hometown of Sheffield, UK.

They asked me to join them to document this feat of endurance and logistics. It was cold. It was wet. It was tiring. It was the most fun I’ve ever had watching a band. They played gigs from cafe, to bar, to big whee,l to tram, to cash machine, to club, to back of a van, to the Sheffield Arena itself…and they had only 36 hours to plan this mammoth event. This video captures the laughter, tears and bizarre locations, got to be worth 4 minutes of your day to see that?!?!
