SDPL Central Library says
Why Are We Doing This in Front of People? featuring a live, pre-screening performance by Jason Begin and Glen Galloway of Octagrape, along with multi-instrumentalist and Music Director for San Diego's School of Rock, Tyler Ward.

Why Are We Doing This in Front of People? is a feature length film by San Diego filmmaker Bill Perrine (“It’s Gonna Blow!!!: San Diego’s Music Underground 1986-96”, “Children of the Stars”) about the pleasures and perils of a life of music. Join San Diego based noise garage psych-rockers Octagrape (ex Trumans Water, Fluf & Soul Junk) as they hit the road, encountering friends, fans, fellow travelers, disinterested witnesses, strange times, open landscapes, Tim Hortons, bad directions and a persistent question: Why are we doing this?

Equal parts tour documentary, variety show and meditation on the transactional-communal nature of art, the movie may gently nod at D.A. Pennebaker’s “Don’t Look Back” and Jem Cohen’s “Instrument” but seems equally besotted with the availability of fart storage systems on the Eastern Seaboard. It's a road movie, a music movie, a strange funny road music movie about the quixotic life of music. It will either inspire you to tour the world or to never leave home.

Featuring performances by Octagrape, Major Stars, Bugs and Rats, Fly Ashtray, Silk Purse (ex Sightings) , Mark Shippy & Maigin Blank (ex US Maple), Porn Persons, William Sides Atari Party, Byron Coley & The Cawl and Complete. Filmed in Chicago, Detroit, Montreal, Northampton, Providence, Brooklyn, Jersey City, New York and San Diego.

Picture This is a cinematic celebration that offers a diverse array of both narrative and documentary film. It strives to be socially engaging, culturally relevant, and informative while still being fun and entertaining. Picture This will at times provide added features to its screenings in the form of guest speakers, discussion panels, concerts, and other eclectic programming.
