First Marky Ramone's (probably fake) leather jacket, now this?
So Gothamist is reporting this morning that somebody or another will be opening a new outpost of CBGB. Per Gothamist:
We have it on good authority that the legendary venue is still alive in spirit, and angling to take over a new space in Manhattan. With the contents of the original club still around in a basement somewhere, if all goes according to plan it will even look like the old space.
Meanwhile, Brooklyn Vegan notes a tweet from an alleged official CBGB Twitter account that asked, "who would you like to see at the #CBGB Music Festival this summer? No band to big or to small."
Hmmm... so where does all this rate on the idea scale — good, bad...
