some of them anyway....

Varvatos Party

The VH1 Save The Music benefit party you heard John Varvatos talk about on Fox is now (unfortunately?) sold out.

The cast of characters playing/appearing at this thing make it look like it could have been one of the 2005 'Save CBGB' lineups, or even one of the final shows the venue hosted before being shut down.

I wonder what Jesse Malin thinks of Rebecca Moore's efforts. He probably saw her sitting there on his way over to his new bar.

DGeneration was always horrible. They could lose 80% of that ticket still wouldn't be worth talking about

i met jesse malin last year...i didnt know who he was and asked him if he'd played anywhere i'd heard of...haha. he was a really nice guy though.

Isn't 'slash' a varavatos pin-up? it would make sense that its some trailer cheese special guest. the youth got kicked out of the trailer park.

now if they were doing a show at the site of neither/nor - then...the 'youth might be in

why am i even on this thread?

I heard SY was going to play all of 'Goo' with Chuck D. sitting in as guest.

Imagine? that would be worth 75 bucks, to say the least.

seriously SY have some gigs the following week, so this might be a warm up?

Im just hoping this does not devide the LES artist/musician community and everyone can come to some kind of group hug or something

bourgeois bullshit.

Actually this is disgusting and a big fuck you to the people playing it even if it is for a good cause. And no, Sonic Youth is not going to be playing at this event.

blah, blah, blah... really? ian hunter & ronnie spector? together they're only 315 years old, and handsome dick, hope he's got some good-looking viagra - d gen hasn't played in 10 yrs cos', umm, they stink - listen to their last album and tell me they're anything but crappy - and oh yes lest we forget jess the entrepenieur & clem burke (even deb knew to stay away from this. and, at least clem isn't using "from Blondie")

what they should do is give us a list of all the cbgb alums who have had the good taste TO DECLINE TO PLAY & have chosen to steer clear of the pussification of cool old things by lame-ass fashion douchees

I heard Hawkwind was going to play all of 'Space Ritual' with Elton John sitting in as guest. again.

Why is Tonic even mentioned in the title? I feel cheated into reading this.
