Kid Dynamite @ CBGB

Like at the Gorilla Biscuits show a week earlier, people slept on line in front of CBGB to get the chance to see the reunited Kid Dynamite one more time. My luck was high that night (August 22, 2005). In addition to receiving a free ticket to the Sufjan Stevens show at Bowery Ballroom that I ran to right right after (it's only a few blocks away), a kind soul named Joe sold me his extra to Kid Dynamite. They turned CBGB upside down.

Greyarea opened with the show with their own impressive set. "In the demise of Raybeez and warzone comes GreyArea (one word) with some guys who are NYC punk/hardcore veterans features Ernie Parada ex-Token Entry and Black Train Jack, and Vinny Value ex-Warzone and no redeeming social value... with Syd Butler on bass."

Ah! A great weekend of reunions! Seeing Lifetime at the Stone Pony was such a rejuvinating experience--it felt like 1995 except that I'm thinner and so is Ari. It was the first time in a long time that I didn't want a band to "hurry up and finish their set already!" I was reminded why Lifetime will always be one of my favorite bands.

KD was fun last night, but they didn't thrill me like Lifetime did. But, for those kids a bit younger than my old lady 28 years who were seeing KD for the first time, it was clearly apparent that they were having the time of their lives. (And, that's cool!) CBGB claims these benefit shows are sold out and the bouncers yell at you to get off the line if you are sans tickets, but they gladly took my $20 at the door and ushered me in. (And, I stepped on line at only 6:30pm.)
