No Fun City Dir. Melissa James, Cananda Is live music being silenced? Cities from Montreal to Melbourne are experiencing the death of the independent live music venue. With the proliferation of condo developments in low-income artist communities, ensuing noise complaints, the commercialization of large music venues, and the rise in stringent city zoning and liquor regulations, small local music venues around the world are struggling to stay open. No Fun City is a RocknRoll journey to the heart of a creative community that is fighting these conflicting business interests and city regulations with the relentless fuel of music and determination.
