Pinback at MHoW (more by Tim Griffin)

It's been a long time coming. Pinback deserves a documentary about them.Currently $95 into its $1100 goal, you can contribute to the cause at Kickstarter.
They've been carving their way through the indie rock scene over the last decade. This ultimately private, unconventional, yet fan friendly band has definitely made their mark on the music industry and more importantly their fans.
I have been granted access to join [Pinback] and step behind the scenes where no one else has quite gone before. This was an idea that had always been floating about but never really picked up any steam. I asked Rob Crow, who's a good friend of mine, about why there hasn't been one... the band is humble and, well... private... they're not a typical touring band... they're not really a typical band at all... but I think that's what's so appealing about them. So, as it goes, I am independently embarking on this journey, albeit with Pinback's blessing. I am doing it as a labor of love for the band and the acknowledgement that so many out there would love to see more about this amazing group.
Soon they're heading to Europe and while I have most of the costs covered thus far, I need a bit more help to make sure this part of journey goes off as planned.
I have already joined them on other legs of their most recent past tours. Slowly, I am adding up footage. I am also in the process of shooting as many interviews with the eclectic group of people who were past touring band members who are now strewn across the country.
Please, help support this amazing this amazing project. ^_^
