Mission Creek Music/Film Festival

Before CBGB’s doors finally closed for good on October 15th 2006 a number of farewell shows graced the legendary club for a very last time. Some of these performances were sensational, others outrageously pathetic and insulting. No matter what category one might file them under, they all had one thing in common. A sold out madhouse atmosphere with a distinct vibe of nostalgia and last supper feasting. Talk about a good time…      “THE SILENCE AFTER” presents the highs and lows of these unforgettable moments. With performances by Patti Smith, Blondie, Bad Brains, Avail and many others. Unedited piece of guerilla work that captures the sprit of CBGBs. Directed by Torsten Meyer, 61 min.
