CBGB – Movie

Tune up Atlanta area actors and actresses, CBGB the movie is bringing the era of hardcore punk to the big screen. Auditions and casting calls are set to be held soon so tear up those t-shirts and acid washed jeans and join the film that will relive America’s epic punk past.

CBGB was a music club founded in 1973 by Hilly Kristal (Alan Rickman) and located on the lower East side of Manhattan in New York City. Hilly’s dream was to fill the place with sounds of folk and bluegrass but not having any luck booking the bands he originally planned on, he was inspired to go in a new direction. Turning over into the 1980s CBGB began making punk rock history with early performances by now legendary names The Patti Smith Group, Fleshtones, Blondie, Talking Heads, Mink DeVelle, Misfits, Television, The B52s, The Dead Heads, Joan Jett and many other punk rock sensations that changed Hilly’s music club into an epicenter of music history. By breaking into underground punk and rock n roll, CBGB became the birthplace to music that is still heard on the radio today. So if any of you Atlanta actresses and actors have ever wondered what it would be like to live in the magical days of punk rock in New York City now is your chance.
