…what’s become of CBGB’s

In music on April 14, 2008 at 3:58 pm

…this article from the New York Press lampoons the protesters outside the new retail store in the former CBGB’s space for even trying. Blaming the protesters for being short-sighted (“Do they really believe that sitting on the sidewalk, feebly clutching their handwritten signs is actually going to bring the club back?”) is actually right on in an unintended way–do the protesters really want CBGB back? Kristal has died, and so the spirit kind of goes with it. Is the stuff in the Varvatos store better off here or worse than in some Hard Rock Cafe location?
