CBGB Movie

As discussed, the CBGB Music & Film Festival is returning to NYC from October 9 to 13 across various venues, and a number of films (including the premiere of the CBGB movie) are screening at the festival. Festival badges are still available, and since we last spoke, tickets for individual movies went on sale.

The CBGB movie premieres at Landmark Sunshine Cinema on October 8 and tickets for that are on sale now.

Other screenings include Bad Brains: A Band in DC, Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me, Cosmic Psychos: Blokes You Can Trust, Filmage: The Story of Descendents/All, Geek USA, Jimi Hendrix: Hear My Train A Comin', Led Zeppelin Played Here, Montreal Underground, Pleased to Meet Me, Pussy Riot: Putin Pissed Himself, Searching for Sugarman, The Blank Generation and more. Tickets for most of those are available at Brown Paper Tickets and the film's schedule is at CBGB's site (though it requires a lot of clicking around to see it all).

Additionally, we'll be giving away tickets to all the screenings happening at Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg, which include Searching For Sugarman, Stevie Nicks: In Your Dreams, The ESG Story, Pussy Riot: Putin Pissed Himself, The Johnny Thunders Story, Geek USA, Filmage: The Story of the Descendents/All and more. The full schedule of Wythe Hotel screenings and contest details are below.

Fuck CBGB for turning its back on hardcore

^ Another impostor.

If I'm gonna post "fuck CBGB" it'd be for a whole lot of reasons which dont include the one you gave under the guise of me.

fyi the premiere is the 820pm show which has been sold out for a while

I actually saw this movie - it is without a doubt the worst piece of shit. It is not even worthy of a VHI Classic airing at 4am

CBGB the name was sold by Hilly's family after their legal squabbles burned off most of the estate. The whole thing is now owned by Viacom, the 3rd largest media corporate conglomerate in the world and they are pissing all over the history of the place.

Hey Brooklyn - for something completely different at CBGB, take a look at THE LIBRARIAN AND THE BANJO, Fri 10/11, 8:30 p.m. at IndieScreen. Q&A with the director, and banjo playing, from African gourd instruments to bluegrass, following the film.

Frohawk owns the rights to CBGB's, not Viacom.

I had never heard of Rodriguez before, and this documentary has been SO touching! What a wonderful story...
