“Nightclubbing” is the first ever documentary about the renowned New York City nightclub Max’s Kansas City and the indelible impact it has had on the world of music, fashion, art and culture.

As legendary Alice Cooper puts it: “A million ideas we’re launched back there”, referring to the Max’s Kansas City famous backroom where Andy Warhol held court with artists, actors/actresses and musicians including the highly influential Velvet Underground.

Max’s was famous for hosting the crème de la crème of New York City luminaries from the art world and film stars to musicians and cultural icons.

Artists, Rock Stars, Junkies, Movie Stars, Gutter Trash, Record Executives all had a place to gather, intermingle, develop and cross pollinate.

Andy Warhol and his Superstars had a place to kick back, relax and revel in the freedom to express themselves in a casual setting.

Max’s was a place where degenerate excessivness and debauchery were so common, that Iggy Pop bleeding on stage seemed lightweight compared to people shooting up amphetamines and having sex in the bathroom.

Starting in 1970 Andy Warhol cohort Danny Fields books the clubs first live music performances of The Velvet Underground, Alice Cooper and Iggy Pop, starting Max’s on its way to being a live venue of credibility and influence.

The Velvet Underground and their summer 1970 residency kickstart the New York City live original Alternative Rock music scene.

As a showcase venue, future superstar artists such as Alice Cooper, Aerosmith, Bob Marley, Bruce Springsteen, Patti Smith, Madonna, U2, The Beastie Boys had a place to develop and be discovered.

Transgender musical performances and performers had a safe proving ground to develop.

Iggy meets Bowie. They develop a friendship that becomes a phenomenal working artist relationship.

NYC Glam Rock had a place to develop. The New York Dolls influence both locals and foreigners alike. The New York Dolls and the New York Punk Rock scene inspired Malcolm McLaren to return to London from New York and put together the Sex Pistols, thus sparking the UK Punk Rock uprising and spreading the genre worldwide.

Art Rock had a place to start and the music duo Suicide had a place to develop and influence the New York City scene.

Bowie deems DEVO the future of music.

The New Hardcore Punk/Post Punk Rock movement had a place to develop.


All at the nightclub called Max’s Kansas City.

“Nightclubbing: The Birth of Punk Rock in NYC” will be the 6th acclaimed music documentary for Spanish filmmaker Danny Garcia and will add to the list of respected music documentaries Danny Garcia has produced and directed.
