2005_08_artscbgb.jpgHilly Kristal opened CBGB's in December of 1973 in hopes to bring a venue to the Bowery for...country music. Yes, country. Luckily, Kirstal welcomed all acts through the doors.

Tomorrow, however, CBGB's lease is expiring. After 40+ days of benefit shows and much confusion as to whether or not they have, in fact, been saved - the landlord still wants them out. To that end, there is a gathering in Washington Square Park tomorrow from 3-7pm.

So skip school! Skip work! Head over there and catch: Blondie, Bouncing Souls, Institute with Gavin Rossdale, Chestfield Kings, The Charms & many more acts to be announced.
