In 1990… We were on the bleeding edge of art & culture. Years of developing culminated into a decade that stands the test of time.
Today… People have gone on to do all types of amazing things, even become Grammy and platinum award winning artists.

Synopsis: The 1990’s NYC music scene experienced a flowering moment in rock music history, with a wild diversity of musical styles and scenes. This moment was born out of the 1980’s rock coalition culture when musicians, promoters and clubs collaborated to create the communities needed to support the growth of music. This is the story of how musicians created their own futures and in doing so, built a world class music scene.

Set against the city government’s hostility toward NYC’s live music culture, music industry apathy and the exploding cost of living, this film traces the rise and fall of a special time in the New York City region DIY music culture history. This story is told through the eyes of  those who were active parts of the culture, faced its challenges, and reveled in its successes.
