Riot on the Dance Floor: The Story of Randy Now and City Gardens

February 11-13, 2015, 7:30 pm

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.
