CBGB

On December 10, 1973, “CBGB” club was open by Hilly Kristal at 315 Bowery, intersecting Bleecker Street, in the East Village. New York. The name “CBGB” stands for country, bluegrass and blues, Kristal’s original idea but “CBGB” soon became a legend  punk and new wave venue. The Ramones, Television, Patti Smith Group, Blondie, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts and Talking Heads are just some of the bands that performed in the club.

The club closed on October 15, 2006, with the final concert by Patti Smith.
