    For those of you like me who had no idea what "CBGB" meant, it's apparently the name of a "punk club" in New York.

          New York is turning into a goddamn mall.
          The noise was good, but I thought they phoned in a lot of the funk.

            I think it's the name of a trendy line of clothing too.

              fuck CBGB.

              If they can't pay their rent, they can't stay in the location.

              What is she doing with the ticket money?
              Are you on the list?

                I'm glad I was able to see a bunch of shows there back in the day.

                Best one ever:

                New Music Seminar "Matador Showcase" in 1989. Matador (home of bands like Pavement, The New Pornographers, Pizzicato Five, Dizzee Rascal, etc.) was brand new, and their entire roster (Superchunk, Teenage Fanclub, and the Dustdevils) were scheduled to perform....

                ...but leading off the show was Uncle Tupelo. They had just signed their first record contract with Giant Records (eventually known as Rockville Records). A bunch of us Missouri dorks from KCOU were there, up front for support.

                Because of the tight scheduling, the boys had to go on early--8:00pm, while the sun was still up in July in Manhattan. Other than us, the room was full of only industry types, curious to see a band they'd heard a ton of buzz about.

                The boys kicked all ass. I still remember them trashing their instruments, Who-style--on the set-concluder "Factory Belt". I also remember vividly the boys outside afterwards, with a gajillion people (I ended up nailing this one chick who wrote for some Boston indie paper) telling them how great they were...

                ...and then Jay Farrar loaded up his cheek and gum with some Skoal, and all these East-coast boarding-school art-school post graduate types looked in equal measure horrified and fascinated. Great night. (After the show, trading Rolling Rocks with Gary Lee and Van Conner of the Screaming Trees was a real hoot, too!)
                I like cheese.

                  Never met Jay Farrar, but I do know his brother, John. Everybody I know always called him "The Hat Man."

                    Interesting. The place was legendary back in the day for a launching pad for such influential bands as the Ramones and the Talking Heads. IIRC, the Talking Heads got their start there..and layed there quite a lot. I would think the place would be an institution for indie bands and have to assume the owners mismanaged their cash.
