Last Show At CBGB Will Be A Sirius Exclusive

Last Show at Legendary New York Club CBGB will be Broadcast Live Exclusively by SIRIUS Satellite Radio
NEW YORK, Oct 10, 2006 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ --

SIRIUS Satellite Radio(SIRI) will broadcast the last performance at legendary New York City rock club CBGB, featuring artist Patti Smith, on Sunday, October 15.

Smith's performance will be broadcast live exclusively on commercial-free SIRIUS music channel 24, SIRIUS Disorder, starting at 9 pm ET.
The famed club is closing following unsuccessful rent negotiations with its landlord. News of its demise has prompted worldwide press coverage and sparked several campaigns to save the musical landmark. Tickets to the October 15 final show with Smith were sold out in 8 minutes, according to CBGB's founder and owner, Hilly Kristal.
Smith, who has been called "punk rock's poet laureate" and is considered one of rock music's most influential and significant artists, first played CBGB in February 1975. She said, "Although we mourn the closing of CBGB, we should remember CBGB, not merely as a place. It is a state of mind."
Since its 1973 opening, many thousands of music lovers have flocked to the Bowery bar that became famous as the birthplace of American punk music. Although Kristal originally intended to present country, bluegrass and blues music shows (which the letters CBGB stand for), the club became known for pioneering performances by New York rock and punk acts including Smith, Television, Blondie and The Ramones, to name a few. The only "rule" regarding playing CBGB was that a band or artist had to play all-original music, and its small stage hosted artists of many genres through the years. ...read more: HERE
