Asbury Park: Riot, Redemption, Rock n Roll
How music fixed a broken city. One day only: May 22 at Smith Rafael Film Center!
A once storied seaside resort, Asbury Park erupted in flames during a summer of civil unrest, crippling the town while destroying the fabled Westside jazz and blues scene.
However, from the flames of the burning city emerged the iconic Jersey sound. Shuttered for decades, the legendary after-hours club Upstage remains a perfect time capsule of the club which united people.
This major theatrical event will also include a bonus feature of never before seen footage, as Van Zandt, Southside Johnny, and Springsteen play a now legendary concert to a sold-out Paramount Theater and trade guitar licks with the future of music in Asbury, a group of 11-year-old rockers who prove the best days for the town may just lie ahead.
