The Knockturnal attended the NYC exclusive screening of The Get Down – part two’s endless cliffhangers are bound to toy with emotions of the popular drama series’ fans like never before.

Music from 1978 booms as show enthusiasts watch throwback trains charged through the hilly graffiti-covered landscape of the South Bronx.  The Get Down’s illustration of hip-hop come-to-life is powerfully painted by culture pioneers, such as Grandmaster Flash, and the legendary Nas.
