In the form of a new venue and a festival that will take place in venues all over Manhattan and Brooklyn! This is ironic timing as I just did that post on the John Varvatos store which occupies the original site for CBGBs . . . got my finger on the pulse I tell ya!
Well this really is exciting because I definitely feel we are in need of a new awesome venue and what better than a tried and tested one even though the new investors are saying that the new CBGBs will not dwell on their past, they will be focusing on new music! It seems that a new venue location has not been finalised yet but the festival dates are July 5th to 8th featuring over 300 indie bands. Read more about it here: http://huff.to/KmNbb6
