Hellogoodbye - OMG HGB DVD ROTFL [DVD]

Reviewed by: Drew Beringer (12/06/05)
Hellogoodbye- OMG HGB DVD ROTFL [DVD]
Release Date: November 22, 2005
Record Label: Drive Thru Records

It's not often that a band releases a DVD before their debut full-length, but the boys of Hellogoodbye have done this. Even with only having one recording (2004's self-titled EP) out, the Huntington, CA quartet has a modestly large following. To hold over their fans before they release their Drive-Thru debut full length next year, HGB released "OMG HGB DVD ROTFL" on November 22. Energy, excitement, and humor run wild throughout this fun DVD.

HGB has included music videos for all their EP songs. "Shimmy Shimmy Quarter Turn" is somewhat of a tribute to Baywatch, while "Call and Return" features the dramatic tennis matchup to win a girl's heart (also an alternate video for this song features a dance routine done by 3 girls). "Dear Jamie, Sincerely Me" is a neat video that features finger puppets and toy animals. The music videos are all funny and done very well. Also included in on the DVD is the band's 40 minute live performance at the House of Blues in Anaheim and a 30 minute acoustic permormance. The live footage is very cool and you can see how big HGB is about to become. The special features include goofy backstage footage and the making of the HGB videos, which is pretty interesting.

In the past few months, Hellogoodbye has become one of my favorite bands. A fun band who writes great catchy pop tunes. I am very excited for their album next year, and this DVD has made me anticipate it even more. If you like music DVD's and/or Hellogoodbye, then this is for you, as it displays the band at its finest and the videos are pretty awesome. This DVD will hold you over until Hellogoodbye releases their album. So, go pick up this DVD and watch this band become the next big thing.

Not true. He capitalizes the first word in a sentence, and knows what a period is.

Is the dance routine done at a show? I think I was there watching that when it was taking place in New Jersey.

i was kinda let down by this dvd. the videos were funny and all, and the live performance stuff was pretty good, but the extra stuff i thought was just boring. they seem to be really funny, chill people and that didnt come across as much as i had hoped it would.
