This Ain't No Mudd Club or CBGB

Couldn't resist the opportunity to post this information (thanks Findley). It seems that the ever-famous club CBGB's on the Bowery in NYC could be closing it's doors. There is a company that owns the buildings that house the club and they don't want to renew the clubs lease for various reasons.

What a tragedy it would be for CBGB's to have to close their doors after being "the home of underground rock" for over 30 years! If it wasn't for CBGB's The Ramones, Blondie, The Talking Heads, Television, Patti Smith or The Velvet Underground would have never made it. Check out the web site, sign the petition.
