Clip From “CBGB” Starring Harry Potter’s Rupert Grint

September 26, 2013

Here’s a NSFW clip from the film CBGB, named after the iconic club that featured the acts that kicked off New York’s punk scene. Rupert Grint, alongside Justin Bartha, star as the Dead Boys.

Synopsis: “CBGB follows the story of Hilly Kristal’s New York club from its conceit as a venue for Country, Bluegrass and Blues (CBGB) to what it ultimately became: the birthplace of underground rock ‘n roll and punk. When Kristal had difficulty booking country bands in his club on the Bowery he opened his doors to other kinds of rock music. Kristal had one demand of the acts he booked; they could only play original music. No top 40’s, no covers. It was the credo he lived by, support the artist at whatever the cost. Hilly Kristal ironically became known as the godfather of punk giving a chance to such bands as Blondie, Television, The Ramones, Talking Heads, Dead Boys and The Police.”

Johnny Galecki, Ashley Greene, and many others join them as some of the other iconic acts that passed through CBGB’s doors. Grint will be joined by Alan Rickman (Severus Snape), who portrays CBGB owner Hilly Kristal.
