Originally a “Country, BlueGrass and Blues” club, CBGB became the epicenter of the New York alternative-music scene in the mid-1970s. With a policy of booking virtually any band that played original music, club owner Hilly Kristal (portrayed in the film by Alan Rickman) opened his doors to groups like Ramones, Blondie, Talking Heads, Television and others long before anyone had ever heard of punk rock or new wave. The cast includes such veterans as Bradley Whitford and Rupert Grint, but - appropriately for a film about an incubator of musicians - most of the actors in CBGB are at the beginnings of their screen careers. And need we mention the killer soundtrack?
