LIVE FROM THE ASTROTURF, ALICE COOPER: Alice Cooper reunites with the surviving members of the original lineup of the band to perform a blistering set on a small stage of pink astroturf at independent music store Good Records in Dallas, TX, 40 years after the band parted ways. Store owner Chris Penn pulls off the near insurmountable task of organizing the event and keeping Alice's appearance a secret until the original shock-rocker hits the stage.

THREE CHORDS AND THE TRUTH: The subculture of passionate advocates of the ‘Cigar Box Guitar Revolution’, reveals how just three chords, played on their unique, DIY, instruments, hand-made from recycled materials, connect them to their truth. Many of these musicians are from post-industrial English towns and create a self-identity through the democratic, anti-corporate, maverick spirit of making these three-stringed guitars.

CONTEMPORARY WOODY GUTHRIE: Black and white imagery explores the divisive, money-centric, culturally segregated America that Guthrie opposed. An idea reignited by his contemporary, Kay the Aquanaut.
