‘Dennis and Lois’ Documentary Now Available to Stream

Posted on: May 8th, 2020 at 5:14 am by

For those who are missing concerts during the COVID-19 pandemic, the much awaited Dennis and Lois documentary is now available for your viewing pleasure.

Directed by Chris Cassidy, the punk-infused documentary following the gig-loving couple is one that puts out all the vicarious vibes. As the story goes, Dennis and Lois once offered to sell merch for The Ramones at CBGB in the 1970s. From there it was full speed ahead, as they connected with big names in music throughout the US and UK. The film features the Happy Mondays, Peter Hook, Andy Rourke, Jimi Goodwin, as well as The Vaccines. The couple is truly inspiring – a testament to loving what you do and not letting anyone or anything get in the way of it. It is a must watch for music fans.

Dennis and Lois typically see up to four shows a week – we can only wonder how they’re surviving the pandemic without their beloved live music.

If you’re looking for more on this quirky-yet-captivating couple, check out our interview with Chris Cassidy when the film first dropped, here.
