The concert tour documentary featuring Mumford & Sons, Old Crow Medicine Show, Edward Sharp and The Magnetic Zeros, 6 cities, 1 train, and thousands of miles of track will be available for purchase in the next couple of weeks.

I met Mumford & Sons at the Marfa, Texas stop of the Railroad Revival Tour back in April 2011. All so sweet and friendly, and it was the best night of my life! :) Also, if you want to read about my experience, you can check out this post:

Instruments will be in tow for a little live music following the film too - as a thanks to Austin High School for the temporary loan of the football field, the local community for allowing, nay, actively supporting such events and to all of the peoplez out there who have supported the film.

If you do not live in close proximity to Austin, well. A live stream of the concert will be broadcast through Myspace.com from 9:15pm CST on the day and an HD version will be available to view through the following day. Not bad, this internet thing.
Find out more about the film over here on Facebook.
We’re pleased to announce two very special musical performances, in conjunction with films premiering at SXSW 2012.
At the Closing Night world premiere of BIG EASY EXPRESS, members of Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, and Old Crow Medicine Show will join director Emmett Malloy and producers Tim Lynch, Mike Luba and Bryan Ling for a Q&A, following which they will perform an exclusive acoustic set. The film and performance, take place Saturday, March 17 at the Paramount. The screening will begin at 4:00pm, followed by the Q&A at 5:15pm, with the performance from 5:30pm – 6:15pm, open to SXSW Film, Music, Gold and Platinum Badges, SXSW Film Passes, and Music Wristbands.
Don’t have those? No problem - a limited number of advance single tickets are available for $12 ($10 + $2 service fee) via the Paramount website, and as capacity allows, day-of-show single tickets may be purchased for $10 at the Paramount Theatre box office approximately 15 minutes prior to the screening.
EDIT - Single tickets to the event have already sold out. If you’re still interested in going, remember that there will be $10 tickets available at the venue box office (as capacity allows) 15 minutes prior to the screening.
3 bands, 6 cities, 1 train, and thousands of miles of track…BIG EASY EXPRESS captures a musical journey. Harkening back to the days of jubilant railroad revivals, three bands set out in April 2011 to tour America by vintage train. Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Old Crow Medicine Show, and Mumford & Sons climbed aboard amid the rail yards of Oakland and set out for New Orleans on a “tour of dreams.” BIG EASY EXPRESS documents the bands’ railway adventures; the high canyons, joyous crowds, blasted skies, late-night laughter, endless music…and a train that was bound for glory.
do you know when the band will pay in LA or anywhere near there? ( :

This might sound like a weird question, but do you have any good pics of Ben playing the ukulele?
