Above & Be­yond Acous­tic: Giv­ing Up The Day Job, a new con­cert doc­u­men­tary di­rected by Paul Dug­dale ( The Rolling Stones Olé, Olé, Olé) for Scheme En­gine and Myles De­sen­berg for Archer’s Mark (BAFTA nom­i­nated Notes On Blind­ness), fol­lows the Grammy nom­i­nated group’s un­likely jour­ney from the DJ booth to the Hol­ly­wood Bowl.
