Doc about Charlotte band premiers on YouTube

A short documentary about Charlotte garage rock quintet Temperance League was posted on YouTube today. The mini doc was produced by "Shuffle Magazine" and Salisbury-based Six Foot Kitten as part of the Take One series. Filmed in September, it features three live performances and the group talking about its self-titled, full-length debut album.

The band is led by songwriter Bruce Hazel and features area music vets Shawn Lynch, David Kim, Chad Wilson, and Jay Garrigan. The group plays Charlotte frequently and opened for Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band at Time Warner Cable Arena in April. It's readying its next album for release in the fall. The language is mostly appropriate for sensitive ears, but there is one case of profanity in the last song.
