1. The Foos get around.
The series follows the band while they write and record their eighth full-length studio LP in eight different cities around the country. Chances are that you live in one of those cities or in its many surrounding areas, so at least one episode will hit home. The episodes will take place in New York, Seattle, Washington D.C., Austin, Chicago, Nashville, New Orleans, and Los Angeles.
2. It's Dave Grohl's third major directorial effort.
3. A new song premieres each week.
If you're like me and are eagerly awaiting this album, then you'll be happy to know that you'll be able to hear a brand new song at the end of each episode. That means that by the time the album is released on November 10th, you will have heard half the album already. If that isn't reason enough to watch then I don't know what is.
4. It's going to be awesome.
5. There's something for everyone.
The series isn't focused on the rock music genre, but it finds ways to relate the band to the music that was born in these cities and areas. How they are going to do that is something we will have to watch to find out (something I'm very, VERY excited for). Artists from many different genres and time periods will be making appearances to discuss their influences and their experiences coming from the places they did. Their stories are what Dave used as inspiration to write the lyrics. I don't think that has ever been done before and we are lucky to live in a time with so many creative forces at work.
