Trenton Music Revolution
By Tamara Fuentes, Kim Ilkowski, Gabriella Oakley, and Gabe Salazar, and David O'Keefe
The Trenton Music Revolution group focused on Trenton's hidden punk rock scene. We interviewed local bands in Trenton, punk scholars and former band members who have performed at the historic City Gardens venue in Trenton to talk about the past, present, and future of the punk scene in Trenton. Our mission with this podcast is to show that punk is not dead. It is thriving and becoming a bigger music scene in Trenton. Through this podcast we want to show how Trenton is actually a safe area and dispel the negative stereotypes surrounding Trenton.
