CBGB Festival film screenings on sale (win tix to some!)

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.
