Known for sweeping orchestral arrangements and blistering live shows, the Airborne Toxic Event burst onto the scene with their song "Sometime Around Midnight," which was voted iTunes' #1 Alternative Song of 2008 and reached #4 on the US Alternative Chart. Counting U2 among its fans, the band has built up a passionate fan base with its epic, string-laden music and extraordinary live performances. Live from Walt Disney Concert Hall is a documentary film chronicling the lead-up to the last of 354 shows in support of the the group's debut album. To mark the occasion, they were joined onstage by a variety of performers, including a world-class string quartet, a children's choir, a high school marching band, horn players, visual artists, and Mexican folkorico dancers. In addition to never-before-recorded new tracks and cover versions of songs by the Ramones, the Magnetic Fields, and Q Lazzarus, the concert film offers an intimate, behind-the-scenes look at the exhaustive rehearsals and preparation that went into putting on the show at the world-famous, Frank Gehry-designed venue, home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
