Double Dagger – If We Shoult Loud Enough

Image: 1579674 If We Shout Loud Enough is an inside look at the Baltimore underground music scene through one of its most pivotal bands, Double Dagger.

If We Shout Loud Enough is an intimate and entertaining portrait that follows Double Dagger as they complete their final tour and album, tracing the history and growth of the band and of Baltimore’s underground music scene. Meet Nolen, a singer who stutters uncontrollably until he picks up the microphone, Bruce, a bassist who can make his battered instrument sound like an entire rock band, Denny, whose drumset regularly collapses under the force of his pummeling, and dozens of the fans, musicians, and artists who have catalyzed the city’s music community. Along the way, the band reflects on why Baltimore has become such a vital and diverse creative breeding ground for the ethos of DIY music and art.

The film was lovingly directed by Gabriel DeLoach and co-written and edited by Zach Keifer. DeLoach has worked on natural history and commercial projects across the Asian continent and in South America for the National Geographic Society and other non-profits, documenting ground-breaking conservation research on tigers, jaguars, one-horned rhinos, and other endangered megafauna. In between freelance gigs, DeLoach makes documentaries. The Harvest was DeLoach’s debut as a documentary filmmaker, it premiered at the Camden International Film Festival and won the Programmer’s Choice for Best Documentary at the Virginia Film Festival. Inspired by the group’s “creativity and ingenuity,” DeLoach set about documenting the last days of Double Dagger, a process that ended up lasting two years.
