Storyline

In the late nineteen-seventies and early eighties South Florida, like many parts of the U.S., saw the birth of an explosive original rock scene. It was a time when music was reinventing itself to appeal to a younger, more discriminating audience. New Wave, Punk and other experimental genres were finding a ready audience and were changing the shape of music forever. Yet, Miami's influential rock artists were one of the nation's best-kept secrets. Relegated to the southernmost tip of the state, the scene was largely overlooked and eventually forgotten. Until now. On January, 28, 2007, The Kids, Z-Cars, Critical Mass, Charlie Pickett, The Cichlids, Slyder, Tight Squeeze and special guests The Romantics took the stage at Club Cinema in Pompano Beach, Florida to the delight of nearly 3,000 fans that came from around the world to see their favorite bands play together one more time.

Terrific!

This is a very well done, expertly made celebration of a lost era in rock and roll history. This is one "long-awaited" documentary that was well worth the wait. Has a lot of information packed into it, but not boring by any means. Interviews and concert mix together well. Johnny Depp on guitar is a welcome bonus. Who knew? Not me! Have we become too accustomed to the over-hyped & overproduced noise that is palmed off on us as rock music these days to truly appreciate its raw & imperfect - and often superior - roots? Rock And A Hard Place: Another Night At The Agora is proof positive that it's well worth the look and listen! What good music used to sound like... And what it needs to sound like again.
