There is no precedent for The Stooges, while those inspired by them are now legion.

Jim Jarmusch, Gimme Danger

Join CMOA and legendary director Jim Jarmusch for a screening of his new film Gimme Danger. A Q&A with Jarmusch follows.

Emerging from Ann Arbor Michigan amidst a countercultural revolution, The Stooges' powerful and aggressive style of rock-n-roll blew a crater in the musical landscape of the late 1960s. Assaulting audiences with a blend of rock, blues, R&B, and free jazz, the band planted the seeds for what would be called punk and alternative rock in the decades that followed. Jim Jarmusch's new film GIMME DANGER chronicles the story of The Stooges, one of the greatest rock-n-roll bands of all time through interviews and never-before-seen footage and photographs. GIMME DANGER presents the context of the Stooges emergence, and relates their adventures and misadventures while charting their long-lasting legacy.

This event is co-presented with The Andy Warhol Museum.
