About this Event

Dir: Derek Burbidge; 1981 (96 mins.)

In the early 80s some just wanted their MTV, while others craved an all-out war. Urgh! A Music War isn’t exactly a “Battle of the Bands” competition as much as it is a time capsule of almost every influential genre of the decade -- Punk, New Wave, Techno -- splattered together in a series of live acts from across the US and Europe.

Featuring unforgettable performances from The Cramps, Devo, The Go-Go’s, Gary Numan, Oingo Boingo, The Police and MANY others, this concert film will have you out of your seat and moshing down the aisles.

Live it…’cause you can’t stop it!
