Nightclubbing: The Birth of Punk Rock in NYC is the first-ever documentary about the renowned New York City nightclub Max's Kansas City (1965-1981) which had an indelible impact on the worlds of music, fashion, art, culture and the creation of the city’s punk rock scene.

As legendary singer and Max’s veteran Alice Cooper says, "A million ideas were launched back there." He’s referring to Max's Kansas City’s famous back room, where Andy Warhol held court and artists, actors, filmmakers, models, writers, assorted criminals and countless musicians — from Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground to David Bowie and the New York Dolls — made an indelible mark on music and the world.

With unique archival footage and exclusive interviews, the film features rare footage of Iggy & The Stooges, New York Dolls, Sid Vicious and Wayne/Jayne County as well as classic footage from Johnny Thunders and The Heartbreakers.

The film will be accompanied by an exclusive short film, Sid: The Final Curtain (20 mins) which documents the final live performance of Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious at Max's Kansas City in September 1978 featuring rare live footage and exclusive interviews from those who witnessed it.
