Riot on the Dance Floor: The story of Randy Now and City Gardens is a documentary from director Steve Tozzi, that features the stark and iconic photography of Thrasher Magazine's Ken Salerno. It is told through an oral history format of in-depth interviews and archival footage, bringing to life the gritty story of one of New Jersey's most infamous clubs and its larger than life promoter. City Gardens was a venue for underground music and during its time it traversed the entertainment spectrum; from the comedy of Henny Youngman to Nine Inch Nails, New Order to Nirvana. Riot on the Dance Floor is a journey of musical champions and underdogs and above all, the freedom and liberation of having complete creative control.Written by
Steve and the rest of the crew did an amazing job of documenting a little known portion of Punk Rock History and The Trenton Area scene.
A great mix of the local culture of Trenton at the time and music scene that City Gardens provided. Yeah, you could go to New York or Philly, but there was something special about City Gardens that made it feel like home even if the place was a dump, it was OUR dump.
I wasted a good portion of my teenage years going to all ages shows there and I just want to thank Steve, Gail and Randy for the memories.
Definitely worth the purchase if you're a fan of the 80's punk scene. Especially if you were there.
If not: YOU DON'T KNOW MAN!!!!! YOU WEREN'T THERE!!!!!!
