Storyline

On February 16, 1989 Larry Bloch and a team of novices achieved something unique in a former Chineese-food warehouse just south of the Holland Tunnel in Manhattan. Not only did this inexperienced collective open a nightclub in the mostly-underdeveloped Tribeca region but they created one that fused music with activism in an all together distinctive manner.

Excellent Documentary
22 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was an amazing film. I am a big fan of the Spin Doctors and have read about how they always played at the Wetlands. I would have liked to get a chance to go to The Wetlands, but I was just a baby when it opened and operated. It was fascinating to learn more about the club. Bands playing until 4 in the morning is just insane! It is a shame that this historic club and activism center was turned into condominiums. As Hootie and the Blowfish said: Doesn't New York have enough apartments?! Not only did Dean Budnick manage to gather footage and pictures from performances at Wetlands, he even got interviews with almost every single band that played there. I thoroughly enjoyed this film. Try and see it if you haven't already. And if you ever went to the Wetlands, it may bring back some great memories for you.

peace.

:)
