Anvil! The Story of Anvil tells the story of Anvil, the Canadian metal band that almost got real huge but never really did but then went out on tour again in Europe as fiftysomethings, which maybe didn't go so well.
I got a little choked up just watching the trailer--thinking about all the solid broskis and hosebags I've played with over the years, and how I probably would have stopped them if they had tried to jump off a cliff, especially if they had the van keys, but probably even if they didn't.
Anvil! The Story of Anvil opens May 22 at The Belcourt.
