Editorial Reviews

Director: Justin Mitchell

Dirty Old Town is a day in the life of Ted Leo, with the Pharmacists, as he descends on Coney Island, NY to play at the 3rd Annual Siren Music Festival. Director Justin Mitchell (Songs for Cassavetes) takes a deeper look at the man behind the praised albums Tyranny of Distance and Hearts of Oak (Lookout! Records). Ted Leo mixes his punk politics, intricate songwriting and blistering guitar work and spits them out as earnest catchy-as-hell rock.

The full-length concert film is mixed with in-depth interviews with Ted Leo and images of one of the most unique places in America.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good film, good DVD, whacko sound editing April 17, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Despite this being a live experience, I still think they could have played with the sound so that Ted's voice was a little more prominent over the other instruments. He is immediately drowned out once the band begins playing. On the other hand, the set was good and the music was played masterfully.

The DVD extras, in-betweens, and such also add value, if you are a Ted Leo/Rx fan and you are thinking about purchasing this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Packed with TedLeoly Goodness! October 20, 2005
My girlfriend got me this as a random gift because she knows how much I like Ted Leo and the Pharmacists. This DVD is great! There's 9 live songs and various interviews and insights into the band's life/history. Very fun to watch. I recommend it to any Ted Leo enthusiast.
