“THIS FILM SHOULD BE PLAYED LOUD BITCH!” reads an opening title card in John Early‘s Max special, John Early: Now More Than Ever, an explicit reference to the beginning of The Band’s iconic concert documentary, The Last Waltz (the same card appears, but without the “BITCH”).

“The struggle with filming a live show is that when you put a camera on something, it loses all of its life,” laughs Early in TV Insider’s video, above. With his special, he and his collaborators decided to go with a “shaky, gritty, New York-y rock doc style” to capture the “sweatiness” of his live shows.
