Summary
"As the 1970s gave way to the '80s, New York's party scene entered a ferociously inventive period characterized by its creativity, intensity, and hybridity. [This book] chronicles this tumultuous time, charting the sonic and social eruptions that took place in the city's subterranean party venues as well as the way they cultivated breakthrough movements in art, performance, video, and film"--Page 4 of cover
