The Sounds Of New York City
This authentic interactive Rockumentary series is a preservation of the New York City Rock Live Music Scene, told by those who lived it and changed the musical landscape during the 1980s and 1990s.
The scenesters at the time will be re-living the moments and memories when watching this rockumentary series.
The general audience will experience first hand the CBGB and Max's Kansas City 70s and 80s Punk and New Wave music evolution and the creation and expansion of new music genres and music scenes.
Who was behind the explosion of new clubs opening up and created a thriving underground economy with many opportunities, which peaked at the Cat Club and Limelight from the mid 80s until early 90s ?
What was the rock star economy like in New York City and which local rock stars walked the clubs dirty red carpet to get to the Limelight VIP room.
The Rock scene started to disappear during the mid 90s, because of City Hall, greedy landlords, gentrification and real estate developers.
The death of the NYC rock live music scene was foreseeable by the small club owners and managers. They became a target by the NYC mayors office and had to pay unjustified and outrageous violation fees, which resulted into closing their doors for ever and the party was over. The final nail in the coffin was the closing of the Limelight and the closing of clubs snowballed from there.
Punk - Rock - Heavy Metal - Industrial - New Wave - Gothic
