The film uses archival footage and interviews featuring a group of musicians who played at Max’s, as well as venue managers and so-called survivors. Altogether, it can be described as “a vibrant oral history, a raw slice of punk nostalgia and punk history”, according to the press release.

In addition to Nightclubbing: the birth of punk rock in New York, Punk Rock Movie Night will also include a special bonus short titled Sid: The Last Curtainwhich premiered at the Dock of The Bay Music Documentary Film Festival in San Sebastian, Spain on May 5. There, the film won the judges’ special mention award.

Sid: The Last Curtain tells the story of the Sex Pistols’ last live performance with bassist Sid Vicious, who died of a drug overdose in February 1979, after the sets’ concert in September 1978. The video includes rare live footage from the last concert of the late 70s with Vicious and exclusive interviews with people who attended the legendary show.
