Blank City Official Trailer
My friend Alyscia and I have a thing we do most Monday nights called “Documentary Night” where we, surprise, watch documentaries. We watched Blank City this week and it was fantastic. It’s about the underground film scene in NYC circa late 70s-early 80s, so it’s not strictly about music. But that scene involved so many musicians - Debbie Harry, Lydia Lunch, Pat Place, James Chance, etc. - that it’s not off-topic for me. Plus it’s a fascinating/somewhat depressing look at the economic changes that began happening in New York at that point and have brought us to the Disneyfied version we see today. You can watch it on Netflix Instant.
