Storyline

On the evening of February 9, 1964, Ed Sullivan introduced The Beatles to America. The next morning 10 million teens had something new to do. With their jaws still on the floor and inspiration stirring within, thousands of youngsters knew their destiny lay in rock and roll. The influence these teens had on rock and roll was unprecedented and their musicianship was impressive. Banging away in their parents garages, teen bands created timeless music. Many 'one take' recordings of garage rock made from 1964 through 1968 have become highly collectible and continue to influence contemporary bands and receive radio play to this day. Teen A Go Go is a rock and roll stomp from beginning to end, providing an entertaining, nostalgic ride into the vibrant teen scenes of the mid 1960's. Featuring original recordings, never before sen super 8 movies, rare archival footage, photographs and interviews with musicians, fans and industry experts. Teen A Go Go captures this historic burst of creativity ... Written by Anonymous

Movie was focused on Ft Worth Texas only
14 January 2014 | by Crising-897-416101See all my reviews

Movie was self serving documentary to musicians around the Ft Worth Texas area. The spent little time speaking about other scenes and we're deprecating when they did. Many people were trying to take credit for inventing rock and roll or stating the they were better than the Beetles. I watched over 75% of the movie and heard no statement about Bill Halley or Gene Vincent. I have no problem about a creating a documentary about your regional area but please label it appropriately and try not to create a revisionist history about it. The documentary did have a lot of good footage of original performances but was plagued with poor audio in places.
