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. The event culminated in South Florida's biggest reunion concert. The film chronicles the remarkable true ... Written by Anonymous

A Rock Doc worth seeing!
17 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Everyone recalls the 1980's Miami scene. Sex, drugs and rock n' roll! But what ever happened to the Miami sound of rock n' roll? This surprisingly well-done documentary, woven around a one-night benefit reunion concert, exposes us to the largely forgotten Miami rock scene and a talented group of bands that should have but didn't. The bands are largely forgotten-The Romantics, the Z-Cars, Tight Squeeze, The Cichlids, Critical Mass, Slyder, Charlie Pickett and The Kids-but many say they all had the chops to make it. Blame it on geography, ignorance or just bad timing. Aaron Wells and Diane Jacques give us the background, the music, the people and the stories. Well done!
