as you probably have heard, cbgb is closing next weekend.  one of my primary objectives when moving here was to visit before they closed, as most of my favoritest bands ever started there.  i got on the job early but then forgot about it only to realize i was running out of time!

but as a friend from out of town is visiting next weekend, we excitingly got tix the night before cbgb closes for the dictators and acoustic blondie set.  yay!

15 year old jenny is very excited.  and 27 year old jenny feels 30 dollar concerts are not punk rock, but she attends them anyway.

    Um. I don’t really follow things well, but doesn’t CBGB always close and then reopen at some point?

    Or is that another bar?

    I remember going there before it closed once upon a time in the ’90s.

  2. Kasey says:

    Hmm. Maybe it was just always rumors and speculation, but I distinctly remember seeing a weird lesbo performance art thing there with the whispered rumors that it was about to close back in ’99.


    Oh, and that weird lesbian thing? Had a puppet show about the Emperor’s New Clothes and this woman had a cardboard puppet theater front and she was menstruating and another woman would dip a paintbrush into her crotch and paint the scenes on her belly. I was drunk so I wasn’t as shocked as I could have been I suppose….Or maybe I was too used to weird performance art.

    yeah i guess it frequently almost closes, but now it is actually closed.
