High and Dry

Where the Desert Meets Rock'n'Roll

Not enough reviews to rate.

While countless films have explored music scenes such as Seattle's grunge rock or the rise of New York City's punk movement, little is known about the bands that defined the desert rock culture of southern Arizona.  The musical documentary HIGH AND DRY exposes the eclectic community of musicians that emerged from Tucson's influential region over the past two decades.  Through explosive performances and in-depth interviews, the film captures the struggle of one small town's big music scene and introduces the world to this hotbed of talent.
