Watch The Girlpool Documentary Things Are OK

Last year, the California punk duo Girlpool released their self-titled debut EP, and it was awesome. It’s the sort of thing that roars with so much personality that you feel like you know the people who made it, and that you want to be friends with them. Here’s another opportunity to feel like you know both members of the band: Things Are OK, a short documentary that, at 25 minutes, is longer than that self-titled EP. For the doc, director Cory McConnell followed the band as they made their first trip to the East Coast late last year, shadowing them as they were on the precipice of something. It’s got interviews and live songs and get-in-the-van tour footage, and it is a very watchable thing. Watch it and check out Girlpool’s upcoming tour dates below.
