Burn to Shine 02: Chicago, IL

Fugazi drummer Brendan Canty and filmmaker Christoph Green have style to burn in this 45-minute concert video, shot inside a condemned house in Edgewater; cameras dangle from a torn ceiling, peek through windows, and dodge musicians to capture every facet of the nine bands performing. Wilco is the most polished act, but for novelty you can't beat the Lonesome Organist, who attacks keyboards and drums simultaneously before segueing to accordion and tap dancing. Other highlights are the Ponys, Tortoise, and Shellac. Shellac bassist Bob Weston also assembled the eclectic lineup and recorded and mixed the flawless sound.
