Wetlands founder Larry Bloch will appear for a question and answer session that will follow the screening of Wetlands Preserved on August 10 in Providence. Wetlands Preserved: The Story of an Activist Rock Club, the documentary film that traces the history of his fabled New York City nightclub Wetlands Preserve, will screen at Providence's Columbus Theater as part of the Rhode Island Film Festival. Bloch will appear on a panel following the film, which is scheduled to start at 6:45 p.m. on August 10 at the Columbus. The film's director Dean Budnick will participate as well, along with a few additional guests.

Wetlands Preserved, which has been identified as one the festival's "signature films," incorporates archival footage, soundboard recordings and the efforts of a dozen digital animators to chronicle the club's tenure from February 1989 through September 2001. Wetlands Preserved features music from Phish, Blues Traveler, moe., The Disco Biscuits, Dave Matthews Band, Sublime, Ben Harper, Spearhead, 311, Ani DiFranco, Robert Randolph & the Family Band, Spin Doctors, Fishbone, Agnostic Front and many additional artists.

The Wetlands was the first place I was really exposed to live music. I was sad when it closed, and I'm glad to see this film coming out. If you've never been to the Wetlands, you sure missed a great piece of music history.

AAAHHHHHHHH....Some things should never be taken for granted...The worst thing is driving by the building these days and it looks NOTHING like the old set up..not even the ramp.

I saw PHISH play there and after the show I asked Trey where I could get a tour schedule and he said call Nectars! I was at so many Dead nights there this is part of my life and I can't wait to see this movie!!!!

Pretty please bring the film back to NYC. I missed the only showing here (which was also the world premiere). If you recall, there was quite a bit of music going on that particular weekend thanks to the inaugural Green Apple fest. So bring the film back on home. The Wetlands was not only the site of my first exposure to the jam scene (courtesey of Jewtastic jammers Soulfarm nee Inasense), but the site of my first stage dive (thanks Mustard Plug). The spirit of the music lives on through ridiculously overpriced furniture!?!? No. That can't be correct.
