Shipping Weight: 1.00 units
Wetlands was one of the hottest venues for underground music in New York City. This former Chinese food warehouse just south of the Holland Tunnel hosted the latest up-and-coming artists in every musical genre. But it was more than just a rock and roll joint it was also the first activist nightclub,' a place as devoted to environmental and political issues as it was to partying and great music.

This entertaining and insightful documentary tracks the history of Wetlands, featuring interviews and concert footage with artists like Dave Matthews, Warren Haynes (Allman Brothers Band), Bob Weir (Grateful Dead), Phish, The Disco Biscuits, 311, moe., Spin Doctors, Mike Doughty, The Roots, Agnostic Front, and Blues Traveler. The birth, life, and death of the iconic venue is lovingly told by those who sweated, bled, and experienced it first hand. Revealing photos of the venue, fans, and performers are brought to stunning life by the skilled hands of some of today's most innovative digital animators, making for an entirely new experience in documentary film.

WINNER! Best Documentary Asheville Film Festival
WINNER! Best Unreleased Film- High Times Stony Awards
OFFICIAL SELECTION- Woodstock Film Festival

"Tells the story of a groundbreaking club with intelligence, spirit, great music and love." - Woodstock Times

"Its hard not to appreciate the idealism and unbridled optimism of an activist nightclub that survived in New York City for more than 10 years before being beaten down by Mayor Giuliani and rampant gentrification." - Austin Chronicle

"More than offering eye candy or great shots of a young Dave Matthews and young Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam, Wetlands Preserved tells a fascinating story and shows a unique perspective of New York City." - Poughkeepsie Journal

"Digs into the intriguing elements of what made the Wetlands unlike any other bar, club or music hall. In many ways the eclectic enclave was unabashedly the hippie haven of its reputation. It can easily be called the CBGBs of Deadheads." - Asheville Citizen-Times

Bonus materials include more concert footage, Outtakes, Photo Gallery & More!
