Rogue Wave Documentary Airs on PBS


Last night on PBS, the Independent Lens premiered the film, D-Tour. It's a documentary about Pat Spurgeon, drummer of Oakland's indie rock band Rogue Wave, as his body slowly breaks down from a failing kidney. It follows his life with dialysis, seeking a donor, trying to find money for treatment and medical expenses, making music, and some soul searching, all while on tour just as the band starts to take off.

The film features live performances from Ben Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie), Nada Surf, John Vanderslice, the Moore Brothers, and Rogue Wave.

The film will be airing online until November 17th.
