About a week or so ago I was coming across stories that there are rumors of CBGB reopening, or something. It was all very mysterious and very vague, but it got my attention.

Now I’m readingthat the CBGB brand was sold several months ago, and for now the new owners are keeping their identity a secret.
I am curious to see what comes of it. I can’t say it sounds promising, but some of my favorite bands started out there, and I hate the feeling I get when I think about it being gone.
