A documentary account of the First Annual Williamsburg Music Festival, which took place in New York City in 2004, less than two weeks before the Republican National Convention. Political activism and music converge as filmmaker Roy Szuper, punker Tony Petrozza, and live music lover Concert Joe hatch a plan to protest the RNC by staging a music festival showcasing artists who make no secret of their dissatisfaction with the political status quo. The music was abrasive, and the message clear: the time for a change was well overdue. As the festival gets underway, Szuper speaks with Audioslave guitarist Tom Morello, CBGB's founder Hilly Krystal, and Vinnie Stigma of legendary punk outfit Agnostic Front is order to explore the reasons for staging the incendiary music festival. Additional conversations with legendary media figure Joe Franklin, Yipster Times founder Dana Beal, and vocalist Dana Fuchs reveal that while the 1960s may be long gone, the spirit of activism lives on.
