Pop-up party is over at Riff on the Bowery

Just catching up on a few items that I didn't get to this past week.

Such as!

Riff, the pop-up store at 313 Bowery, closed last Sunday.

The place opened last October and featured the rock-inspired clothing line called Andrew Charles created by Andy Hilfiger and Steven Tyler... (Tyler performed there during a grand opening last fall.)

In fact, the only thing left in the space is this cutout of Tyler with his daughter Chelsea...

Not sure what's coming here next... the Morrison Hotel Gallery was here for several years..

And, once upon a time ...


There was the CBGB Record Canteen and, later, the 313 Gallery.

313 had been on the market for months...

However, RKF has removed the listing...

Sort of honoring the 'birthplace of punk' in Extra Place

Thanks to EV Grieve reader Spike for sending along these photos from Extra Place — the former piss-filled alley behind CBGB ... On Sunday, Spike saw these behind Riff, the newish Steven Tyler clothing design shop or whatever in the former CBGB Gallery space...

... and lord knows what this is next to it ... the birthplace of the cell phone? A celebration of annoying people with yappy dogs?

Meanwhile, as you may have seen in the front window of Riff, a tribute to the Ramones...

And the real thing one day seemingly a long time ago on Extra Place...

Previously on EV Grieve:
Extra Place now officially a Dead End

Meanwhile, Extra Place continues to maintain its proud heritage

Perhaps he just saw Extra Place for the first time in 15 years or so?
