Yes! Trampled By Turtles, who will perform at the Hideout Block Party / AV Fest have had their beautiful song “Alone” included in the highly anticipated film, The Way Way Back, which was just released in theaters nationwide this week!
TBT proudly come from humble Duluth Minnesota. They have tattoos of Minnesota on their arms. They proudly play at the Minnesota State Fair. TBT has an intense and loving legion of fans, and great reviews for all their albums especially their latest beautiful album “Stars and Satellites”. Known for their amazing raucous live shows, they quietly went up the northern Minnesota to record and be “Alone” under the great northern stars and satellites. “We wanted to make a record that breathes,” explains Dave Simonett (guitar/vocals). “You know how sometimes they say ‘less is more,’” notes Erik Berry (mandolin), “that’s what Stars and Satellites is about.” Less is More! That is the Hideout Style! The Chicago Style! The Midwestern Prairie Style! TBT is a band of big burly bearded Lumberjacks. Regular guys who can hunt and fish and survive the cold winters. But inside these guys burns a hot red campfire heart, a big bear hug of love. They have a silly ironic band name, but when you see them live, you’ll know why we all love them. And you are not “Alone”!
“Lit up and charged…four-part harmonies that are close to being crystalline.” —Daytrotter
“Supercharged songs with a hooky playfulness and white-knuckle power…” —Esquire

THE WAY, WAY BACK is the funny and poignant coming of age story of 14-year-old Duncan’s (Liam James) summer vacation with his mother, Pam (Toni Collette), her overbearing boyfriend, Trent (Steve Carell), and his daughter, Steph (Zoe Levin).
Having a rough time fitting in, the introverted Duncan finds an unexpected friend in gregarious Owen (Sam Rockwell), manager of the Water Wizz water park. Through his funny, clandestine friendship with Owen, Duncan slowly opens up to and begins to finally find his place in the world - all during a summer he will never forget.
