A captivating account of how a city's alternative live music scene is fighting back against losing its music venues due to gentrification, restrictive bylaws and noise complaints. The camera follows as venues are shut down, parties are raided, and musicians resort to playing in illegal venues, DIY warehouses, and even parking lots, mostly located in the downtown eastside of Vancouver, Canada's poorest zip code. These brave supporters of punk and metal face irate neighbours, police raids, evictions, deportation, million dollar lawsuits, and battle city hall in order to keep their underground music scene alive. This award winning documentary features interviews with Canadian bands such as Skinny Puppy, DOA, Subhumans, Dayglo Abortions, 3 Inches of Blood and Japandroids who help shed light on a problem that exists throughout the world. Plus gritty live music performances, candid behind the scenes action, and a throttling Rock’n’Roll soundtrack.
