Patti Smith Performance To Close Cbgb
Veteran rocker PATTI SMITH will play the last gig at New York punk mecca CBGB next month (OCT06). The GLORIA star will perform alongside her longtime guitarist LENNY KAYE on 15 October (06). CBGB was due to shut up on 30 September (06) after 33 years but will now close its doors for the last time 15 days later. CBGB boss HILLY KRISTAL, who lost his lease last year (05), recently confirmed he is moving the club to Las Vegas, Nevada. CBGB hosted the New York punk revolution in the mid-to-late 1970s, staging regular shows for the Smith, RAMONES, BLONDIE and TALKING HEADS, among others.
