How to Grow a Band is a documentary about the formation of the Punch Brothers, a bluegrass band meets classical string quintet headed by Nickle Creek frontman Chris Thile.  I am not a big bluegrass fan, not for any particular reason, I just grew up on rock and pop instead.  So my only point of reference for music documentaries is rockumentaries, and this is like a flavorless version of a rockumentary.  No sex, no drugs, and very little inner band squabbling.  For these 5 nice guys who are just living their dreams and can’t believe it, its all about the music, which is again, not my thang.  But their musicianship is incredible and you can’t deny that this is a good and unique band.  Worth Checking Out
