I'm already cringing at the idea of this:
the hipsters are already lining up for this
This sounds just about as good as the movie about The Germs.
Just make a documentary. A Hollywood movie is probably never going to be able to capture the grit and grime of the early punk scene in the Bowery in the 1970s.
Depends on what it is up against.
I think it might be as well recieved as "The Runaways ".
Ugh. To me, with few exceptions, the whole CBGB scene was one of the shittiest periods in Rock history. Yet Rolling Stone and the R&R HoF feverishly such on that dick for some reason.
I also loved how when CBGB couldn't pay their rent and had to close, all the artists who were big there pleaded for it to be saved, yet none of them seemed to pony up any dough.
You're kidding right? A lot of bands that played there/came out of there shaped the the last 30+ years of music.
I'd be ok with the movie if they based it from 'Please Kill Me', but I doubt that's what they're going by
Definitely agree with your point of bands not ponying up money to help the venue out. I was pissed off about that back when Korn was playing a show there to "help them out" and was saying 'how about you just give them 80k if you care that much?'
