Madball @ CBGB

Madball was a sweet last minute addition to the last hardcore matinee show at CBGB's on Sunday October 8, 2006. Vocalist Freddy kept saying he never thought he'd play on the CBGB stage AGAIN. That was before his final-final appearance which was when he later joined his big brother Roger on stage.

Agnostic Front @ CBGB

Agnostic Front headlined the last-ever hardcore matinee at CBGB on Sunday (Oct 8, 2006). Murphy's Law, Madball, Sick of It All, and Harley's War were also on the bill. What else is there to say - after 26 years they can still make the place go nuts.

Heebie Jeebies at CBGB BOOK
"...journalist Beeber does a commendable job of illuminating the Jewish backgrounds of many of punk's pioneers, including Joey Ramone (Jeffrey Hyman), Tommy Ramone (Tamas Erdelyi), as well as Lou Reed, Lenny Kaye, Blondie's Chris Stein, CBGB owner Hilly Kristal right up to the heir-apparent to the Jewish-punk crown, the Beastie Boys." [Get the book @ Amazon]

Heebie- Jeebies at CBGB's : With author Steven Lee Beeber, Danny Fields, LEnny Kaye, & other special guests at Museum of Jewish Heritage: Edmond J. Safra Hall, New York City - "Join us for a look at the fascinating New York Jewish origins of Punk. Our panel of famous figures from the music scene will address Punk’s ironic humor, leftist political engagement, and concern with the common man, among other topics. The Heebie-Jeebies of the title is more than just a joke then— it is an expression of the nervous 'shpilke' ridden nature of Punk." [$5 - DECEMBER 6, 2006]

"On one side is Live Nation Inc. Chief Executive Michael Rapino, who has vowed to drive down prices that last year soared to an average of $57 per ticket for the most popular shows. On the other side is Ticketmaster, which dominates music ticket sales through its thousands of outlets and Internet sites." [LA Times] (thx Sam)

HR and Jesse Malin

The above photo is HR of Bad Brains playing with Jesse Malin at the Continental's 4th-to-last show ever (Thursday, September 14th, 2006). Jesse came back on Friday the 15th to play with Trigger too. Carla wrote in...

the show Friday was great. it was fucking packed! we were there till close to the end- we missed the last band. It was pretty cool because there's this whole crew of rock bands (Drag Citizen, Honor Among Thieves, Banana Fish Zero, Joker Five Speed, Slunt, the Sex Slaves) that used to play together all the time at the Continental, Rock Candy at Don Hills, Trash, etc. and it was really nice for a lot of them to get together at the Continental one last time. There's still really a cool community of hard rockers in this town-- pretty much under the radar, but it's still going on. Trigger played with a bunch of guys form the bar (Bingo the door guy on bass and this dude Joe) and Jesse Malin. They were great. Appropriately, they played I Wanna be sedated and Blitzkrieg Bop. I took some pictures that didn't come out because someone was throwing beer in the crowd. It was dirty, loud, and smelly-- the de rigueur Continental experience.

Murphy's Law played there on the 16th. Were you there on the 17th (the final night)? If so, I'd love to hear about it.


HR will be rejoining Bad Brains for two CBGB gigs in October. Jesse Malin is playing two shows at the Living Room during CMJ.
