Los Straitjackets to release Live In Concert DVD

From Yep Roc Records:

Yep Roc Records will release the new Los Straitjackets DVD Live In Concert, on May 13th, 2008.

Los Straitjackets have made a career out of being one of the most dynamic and skillful instrumental bands on the planet. Their renowned live show is filled with mind-bending guitar theatrics, group choreography and fuzzed-out experiments in high fidelity rock n' roll showmanship. On their new DVD, In Concert, the luchadores of rock document a 2005 gig at San Francisco's historic Great American Music Hall.

The set abounds with original tracks and signature far out covers ("My Heart Will Go On") done as only the Straitjackets can do them. The spellbinding shows are captured in Dolby 5.1 surround sound and crystal clear video resulting in a vintage snapshot of the band in lean, mean musical form. Complete with kitschy cool intro sequences produced by the band, In Concert is the quintessential document of the Los Straitjackets live experience.

In Concert will also be available on 12 inch vinyl, complete with an alternate track listing and songs not available on the DVD version.
