Who are you? And what in the world is this video thing you want me to download?
We're Jill Sobule & Julia Sweeney. Jill's a singer-songwriter. Julia's a writer and performer. And this is an hour-long concert recording of our show, The Jill & Julia Show. Jill sings. Julia tells stories. We recorded it at one of our gigs in Chicago, and you can download it or stream it for $5.
Why are you releasing a concert film like this?
The people have spoken. We've had so many requests from fans and friends and social media acquaintances to have the show available online. Or people who wanted to see our show, but couldn't coordinate their lives with our tour schedule. Also, we know that most of us want to stay home in our big underwear and yet also somehow see a concert at the same time. Now you can!
Are you going to release audio?
We don't currently have plans to release the audio, but we might. You can keep updated here on our site and on FB and Twitter. We'll shout out there if audio becomes available.
Hey, this doesn't look like a fancy slick HBO special. Why not?
Well, HBO didn't film this, so there's that. But also, we filmed it on the fly with our friends at Kinzie Street Studios during a one-night gig in Evanston, IL on three days notice. We only filmed one show. We edited it down to the best hour of that show. Actually, considering, it looks dang good. We're pretty tickled with it.
What if I like it and want to tell, like, 1,000 of my friends to buy it?
Yes! That would be very, very good. Thank you, in advance. We might just make enough money back to film another one! You can just share the link to our trailer HERE or gift it to a friend HERE.
Wait, it seems like the downloadable files are DRM-free. Can't I just share it with my friends that way?
We can't stop you from sharing the files, but we can only ask nicely that you don't. We kept the price affordable at $5, so let your friends get the same great deal you did. Thanks for understanding.
I want to see you perform live. Where can I do that?
We want to see YOU live too. Our tour appearances are listed HERE. We have about 12 shows we're doing between now and the end of the year.
