GO NIGHTCLUBBING!: DOWNTOWN NEW YORK 1977-80
GO NIGHTCLUBBING!: DOWNTOWN NEW YORK 1977-80
July 14  July 16

FILMMAKERS IN PERSON, WITH SPECIAL GUESTS MARTIN REV, JAY DEE DAUGHERTY, AND JEFF MAGNUM!

Video artists Pat Ivers and Emily Armstrong, in the pre-MTV days from 1977-80, spent their nights documenting New Yorks nascent punk and No Wave scenes. Armed with Portapak cameras, they shot rare performances and interviews with the Dead Boys, Iggy Pop, the Heartbreakers, John Cale, the Cramps, Sun Ra, the Go-Gos, Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, James Chance and the Contortions, Richard Hell, and countless others at legendary clubs like CBGBs, Mudd Club, and Danceteria. Described by the New York Times as the Lewis and Clark of Rock video, Ivers and Armstrong originally presented their work on the show NIGHTCLUBBING, in the early days of cable TV. Since then, their footage has been presented at museums and galleries around the world. Iverss and Armstrongs iconic 1980 video installation at the opening of the influential Danceteria nightclub pioneered the concept of video as a permanent feature in a nightclub and of the video DJ as artist.

Anthology is thrilled to present four separate screenings comprising seven different compilation programs, with Ivers and Armstrong here in person for Q&As after all shows, and very special appearances from Suicides Martin Rev on Saturday, July 15, and the Patti Smith Groups Jay Dee Daugherty and the Dead Boys Jeff Magnum on Sunday, July 16!

This is the ultimate wish-I-was-there documentation of gigs at CBGBs and other Big Apple clubs, a virtual whos who of groundbreaking punk, New Wave, and hardcore artists. SAN FRANCISCO BAY GUARDIAN




SCREENING SCHEDULE:


PROGRAM 1 - July 14 at 8:00 PM:

PUNK
Seminal performers like Iggy Pop, Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers, Dead Kennedys, and Rocket from the Tombs anchor this exploration of hardcore music with rare early Bad Brains, and the Dead Boys.

NEW WAVE
In 1980, from Tokyo to Minneapolis, punk music was evolving to create New Wave. With a poppy, electronic sound, bands like The Plastics, the Suburbs, Ballistic Kisses, Bush Tetras, the Go-Gos, Human Sexual Response, Kid Creole and the Coconuts, Our Daughters Wedding, Pylon, and Strange Party embodied this musical shift.

Total running time: ca. 85 min.




PROGRAM 2: SUICIDE - July 15 at 8:00 PM:

MARTIN REV IN PERSON!

Conventional wisdom tells us that punk began in 1975 or 76. Not for Suicide, a punk band since 1970. Innovators Alan Vega and Martin Rev put forth the model for the synth duos that went on to dominate the 80s  but with their own unmatched style and legendary use of drum machines, organs, and synths. Travel back in time with us for this SUICIDE LIVE show. Followed by a Q&A with Martin Rev, as well as Pat Ivers and Emily Armstrong!

Total running time: ca. 45 min + Q&A.




PROGRAM 3 - July 16 at 5:45 PM:

JAY DEE DAUGHERTY IN PERSON!

GREATEST HITS
This program hits the bases with the very best performances from fan faves like Divine, The Cramps, Richard Hell and the Voidoids, Levi and the Rockats, the Go-Gos, and more.

INTERVIEWS
Culled from their collection of 25 interviews with musicians, writers, and scene makers, this program finds Ivers and Armstrong talking with Jay Dee Daugherty and Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith Group), Walter Lure (The Heartbreakers), James Chance (Contortions), Jeff Magnum and Cheetah Chrome (Dead Boys), and Richard Lloyd (Television).

Followed by a Q&A with Jay Dee Daugherty, from the Patti Smith Group, as well as Pat Ivers and Emily Armstrong!

Total running time: ca. 85 min.




PROGRAM 4 - July 16 at 8:00 PM:

NO WAVE AND BEYOND
Not for the meek, this program features Downtowns most cutting-edge artists, from Velvet Underground veteran John Cale on his Sabotage tour to rare footage of James Chance and the Contortions, and Teenage Jesus and the Jerks at the Paradise Garage in 1978. No Wave superstars DNA, the Lounge Lizards, and Sun Ra round out the noise fest.

NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD BOYS
JEFF MAGNUM IN PERSON!
Join us for a program that features a legendary live concert by the Dead Boys at CBGBs in 1977, at the height of their power! This is American punk at its most raw, honest, and urgent.

Followed by a Q&A with Dead Boys bassist Jeff Magnum, as well as Pat Ivers and Emily Armstrong!

Total running time: ca. 85 min.
