anyone fancy a trip to New York next October then?
it's been shit for years.
the strokes hate it.
at least it should stay in ny. vegas would have been beyond a joke.
and Rancid style bands nowadays, occasionally a name band will play because of the history.
The Strokes hate it? What did their watered down Modern Lovers shite not go down well?
I've just never been there and want to go before it karks it. Just to say I have, y'know?
start off at CBGBs, become disillusioned, then BAR CRAWL round much cooler places in Noo Yawk! it's a winner!
'Bout time they kicked out Hilly Kristal.
He's a cantankerous old bastard who is in it for his own personal monetary gain (t-shirts anyone?) and some bullshit nostalgia.
The venue hasn't had a decent band in it for years; full of crappy sub punk gash and goth nonsense.
Once he's out they can turn it into the homeless shelter they've been trying to all along.
gonna go to NY, there is a really cool set of apartments about 5 min walk from CBGBs called the Off Soho Suites, which are pretty cheap for the location. Plus Henry Rollins stayed there and apparently still does every time he is in NY. Also, dont be a dork and buy an over priced tshirt from the CBGBs.
I was disappointed, I wanted it to be 1977 and Lester Bangs to be stood at the front with Richard Hell and Tom Verlaine watching the Ramones.
Halloween is the best time to go to New York!
I wonder if my friend can postpone her Graduation till then.
As it stands I have to go out in June.
