The Gothamist checked out the original/archived walls from CBGB’s (the famed punk and hardcore club on the Bowery) and brought along a photographer. If you were into punk, rock, hardcore, metal or were just generally angry, you had at least one or two really good CBGB’s stories. Mine involved the Bloodhound Gang, Miller Lite and ambient hooliganism, with most of us cutting our teeth and seasoning our guitar & leather jacket palette in and around this place. Jim Kiernan (the photographer) was also a regular, so he’s created some great shots that need to get seen. Props to the Gothamist for making this happen.
