DIY documentary on seminal post-hardcore band At the Drive-In (1993-2001)
At the Drive-In are an American post-hardcore band from El Paso, Texas, formed in 1993. Consisting of singer Cedric Bixler-Zavala, guitarists Jim Ward and Omar Rodríguez-Lopez, bassist Paul Hinojos, and drummer Tony Hajjar, the band released three studio albums and five EPs before breaking up in 2001. Their final album, 2000’s Relationship of Command, received a number of accolades and is cited as a landmark of the post-hardcore genre. Following the breakup, Bixler-Zavala and Rodríguez-López formed The Mars Volta while Ward, Hinojos, and Hajjar formed Sparta. At the Drive-In reunited in January 2012 and played the 2012 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, as well as the 2012 Lollapalooza Festival. With the Mars Volta now apparently defunct, Bixler-Zavala & Rodriguez-Lopez recently recorded an album and are touring under the name Antemasque.
