Holy Modal Rounders: Bound to Lose

Feature Films & Documentaries

The Holy Modal Rounders: Bound to Lose recounts the unique forty-year history of true American originals, from their origins in New York’s Greenwich Village folk scene and their involvement in the Easy Rider soundtrack, to the lost years of constant drugging, endless touring, and a final shot at redemption. With startling intimacy, the film also documents the band’s arduous, amusing, and sometimes heartbreaking struggle to capitalize on their recent resurgence in popularity, culminating in an unpredictable 40th anniversary concert reunion.
