THIS IS FOR THE VERSION OF THE BOOK WITH B&W PHOTOS
No Slam Dancing, No Stage Diving, No Spikes is an oral history of 80s-era alternative, metal and punk rock music told through the portal of one club Trenton, New Jersey s legendary City Gardens. From Punk to Metal, from Ska and Reggae, New Wave and Alternative, if there was a band you dug through the 80 s and 90 s that never made the commercial airwaves, there's a damn good chance they played at City Gardens.
The club played a huge part in a lot of people s lives... No Slam Dancing... is an oral history of one of the most important clubs to ever exist. For far too long City Gardens has gone without being recognized as such and now it s time for the people who lived it and made it what it was to tell the story in their own words. Whether you went there or just loved the bands who played there, there is a story inside for everyone who has ever attended a live gig.
