The 2013 CBGB Festival is coming up next week (Oct. 8 - 13), and in addition to the many shows, movie screenings and panel discussions, there's also going to be a photography exhibit. The "Never Again" Photo Show will be on display at Wooster Street Social Club from October 9 - Nov 1 and explores "the lexicon of the New York music scene, documenting the moments that can never be re-created, and continuing the tradition championed by music-photographers of the past: creating new legacies of moments that might otherwise be overlooked." Photographers include many BrooklynVegan contributors: Chris La Putt, David Andrako, Dana (distortion) Yavin, Amanda Hatfield, Greg Cristman, Jason Bergman, Jacob Blickenstaff, Abbey Braden Raymonde, Guy Eppel, Jen Maler, Ryan Muir, Gabi Porter, Kyle Dean Reinford, Tod Seelie, Rebecca Smeyne, Loren Wohl, and Ebru Yildiz.
The opening night party (10/9) goes from 7-10 PM and features DJ Justin Collectorscum, complimentary beverages and "Rock n' Roll manicures by NQ."
