THIS MUST BE THE PLACE: THE END OF THE UNDERGROUND 1991 – 2012
Friday, July 26 – Sunday, July 28
Since 2012, the Roxie shines a summer spotlight into the darker crevices of the musical crater left in the wake of punk rock. All good things must come to an end, and with that, our final installment of THIS MUST BE THE PLACE examines the final outer reaches and fading echoes of an underground corrupted up by predatory record label advances, a mining town after the gold rush, a culture of scarcity and samizdat rendered obsolete by the almighty Internet.
Scene-by-scene, we’re working our way through what happened, from New York to Louisville to San Francisco to LA to Memphis and back again.
It was fun while it lasted!
