In high school, when I was just another middle class kid who so desperately wanted to be a punk rocker (insert Ramones song here), CBGBs was the Mecca of cool. Now, due to dramatic financial problems, the club faces possible shutdown.

Dedicated punks who made it past eighteen still wearing Mohawks have banded together in an attempt to prevent that from happening.


CBGB Fundraiser Throughout August


Rising rent rates prevent the club from continuing as usual. Taking the initiative, CBGBs is holding a month-long fundraiser. I'm fairly certain this won't be the bake-sale variety of fundraisers. The club has lined up classic, local, and up-and-coming punk bands to play throughout August.

Benefit shows play throughout August. To check out the listing or to donate money to the club, visit www.cbgb.com. Their August calendar promises the following:
