From 1964 to 1969 the Cafe Au Go Go in New York’s Greenwich Village was a beacon in the night for many a disenfranchised performer. A few obscure and relatively unknown musicians and comics like Musicians & comics Jimi Hendrix, Steven Stills, The Grateful Dead, The Cream, Jefferson Airplane, Blood Sweat and Tears, Frank Zappa, George Carlin, Richard Prior, Lily Tomlin, and Lenny Bruce (who was famously arrested there), would all get their start down at the legendary Cafe Au Go Go at 152 Bleeker Street.
7 Years Underground: A 60’s Tale tells the tale of this legendary venue whose artists would influence a whole generation of hip, New York teenagers. In turn, those teenagers would inspire a grass roots movement to help transform the socio-political landscape and consciousness of an entire “hippie” nation during the turbulent 60’s.

A father and son do not understand each others sentiments while they are watching television. The father has a hard time figuring out why his son is laughing and the son finds it really weird why his father is crying. However, at the very end of the film, they find something that interests both of them together and start to gather up better.
