$5 Cover: Seattle is an MTV production being broadcast online. This series showcases local Seattle musicians in a docu-drama like setting. I can’t quite figure out if the lines are scripted or if it’s all improvised as it happens. Perhaps, it’s a bit of both. The storyline is thin but the music is kick ass good!
Each episode covers a new artist and then sometimes goes back to a previously showcased artist. Personally, I think the show would have done better to have picked one band and followed it through a summer tour. We would have gotten a better chance to know the musicians and their music.
This show gets a half squashed pumpkin for the lack of storyline and structure but it is still worth checking out for the amazing music.
