Exclusive Clips

Going through some footage for the big rerelease and came across one of my favorite moments from making the film. I got to follow Larry into the recording studio when he was thinking about a solo album. Here are some never before seen clips of him playing original songs:

"Thank You Ange"



Support indie film: buy the DVD!

"Is It About The Music/Just Having Fun"



I just call this one:"Big Ol Bear"
Pretty sure Larry plays this one now, right?

Larry Keel Beautiful Thing

Larry Keel Beautiful Thing is the ultimate bluegrass DVD, following the life and times of a true bluegrass road warrior around the country, on tour, behind the scenes at home, and in the recording studio.

The film was featured as the first and only film ever to play Merlefest, and has sold thousands of copies to date. Release in 2004, the film has only gained relevance as Larry and his music have grown. Watch as Larry battles on night after night, playing for sold out fest crowds and empty bar rooms alike.





"Might just become essential as Keel's music continues to grow an innovate... Keel's remarkable talent is on full display..."

Soundtrack Case FREE Bwalk

Are these bands any good?
These bands are phenomenal. They tour all over the country, some are signed with small labels, some represent themselves. But every band on The Graduates soundtrack adds a beautiful little piece of the entire puzzle of growing up- the beauty, the sadness, the drunkness, the ridiculousness and of course, the laughter.

Can I check them out before I sign up?
Of course! Our online music store allows you to sample every song, any time you want, just like iTunes. So check it out for yourself!

Will you send me spam?
Never. We will only send you the weekly reminder to download your free song, and a reminder when the film comes out.

Why are you giving away music and video from the film? Don't you want people to pay for every little thing?
The short answer is no. Eventually it would be nice if you go buy a ticket or put the movie in your Netflix Queue, but whatever, we know our movie isn't for everyone, no movie is! Hopefully you'll love the music and the movie. If not, no worries. We'll be happy knowing we gained incredible exposure for the film and for a bunch of bands we truly believe in.

Everything we're doing to promote The Graduates is grassroots. Studios don't give away songs because they don't trust the audience- they think they have to trick the audience to show up in the theater. Well, that's true, if you make shitty movies.

We made a good movie, and we think if you get a taste of it, you'll agree! So sign up, get some free music from incredible, emerging indie bands every week, and come see the film in May.

Don't forget: To sign up, just send a blank email to Music@GraduatesMovie.com. You'll be automatically registered!

"Last night I went to see the premiere of a new indie movie, The Graduates... The music really was a great fit with the movie and one of my favorite scenes (shows the boys riding bumper cars and playing skeeball) was greatly enhanced by the music..."
