For anyone who ever listened to the radio and pondered just how mainstream so-called "alternative" music has become in recent years, filmmakers Frank Pavich and Steven Scarlata offer an illuminating look at the New York City hardcore scene. Created by music fans for music fans, this documentary focuses on a style of music that you can't hear on MTV or any popular radio stations. This isn't your typical, cursory look at slam-dancing and stage-diving, but an opportunity to hear from the folks who have dedicated their entire existence to making the most confrontational music ever recorded. Come as you are, but leave your expectations behind because N.Y.H.C. is everything you'd never expect it to be.
