Wetlands. For many the name evokes a spirit, a community, an ethos. People still rave about the time they first encountered The Dave Matthews Band, Blues Traveler, Phish or Pearl Jam at the legendary New York City rock club. Others never visited, but have seen the signature Wetlands bus in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame or have listened to the celebrated live recordings that originated from the club's intimate stage. Still others participated in Wetlands' working groups for social and environmental advocacy and remain tethered to its influential Activism Center. With the opening of "Wetlands Preserve" in February 1989 as a self-styled "Eco-Saloon," the nightclub was already an anomaly. By the time it had closed in September 2001, it had become an archetype as well. Yet while the Wetlands legend and legacy endures, a full account of its rich history remains untold. Even those who have a familiarity with the venue know only a fraction of the story. Vintage footage, original recordings and new digital animation tell the story of the celebrated nightclub in Tribeca New York, tracing the history of this venue and its denizens, which ultimately thrives as an independent nightclub that supports new music and provides a nurturing proving ground for talent.
