Resourcefully shot with ambient light at Max’s Kansas City and CBGB, Gruen’s grainy footage captures the raw, you-are-there spirit of such up-and-coming musicians as Patti Smith as they appear in New York’s clubs. These performances by Wayne County, Blondie, Robert Gordon, Tuff Darts, Patti Smith, and The Heartbreakers aired on Manhattan public-access cable television.
