New Clip From “CBGB” Movie Features The Police

October 8, 2013

Here is another clip from the upcoming film CBGB featuring The Police and Alan Rickman as owner Hilly Kristal.

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.

The picture hits theaters on October 11th, VOD on November 1st, and Blu-ray/DVD on December 31st.
