Is live music being silenced? Cities around the world are experiencing the death of the independent live music venue. With the proliferation of condo developments in low-income artist communities, ensuing noise complaints, the commercialization of large music venues, and the rise in stringent city zoning and liquor regulations, small local music venues around the world are struggling to stay open.
No Fun City is a film about the underground music scene in Vancouver and its ongoing struggle in a city that seems hell-bent on shutting down all the fun. Witnessing the ups and downs of life behind the scenes, we watch as venues are closed, parties are raided, and musicians resort to playing in illegal venues, warehouses, and even parking lots. No Fun City focuses on the lives of local promoters such as Wendy 13 from the Cobalt and Malice Liveit from the Sweatshop as they face police raids, evictions, deportation, million dollar lawsuits, and city hall in order to keep Vancouver's underground music scene alive.
The film features interviews and performances of current local bands such as 3 Inches of Blood, Japandroids, Nu Sensae, Sex Negatives, as well as legendary Vancouver bands such as DOA, Subhumans and Skinny Puppy.
No Fun City is about the fight to keep underground music alive and how to do it yourself when things stand in your way.
