In 2006 New York City lost two of it’s most beloved and influential rock and roll music institutions. But CBGB and Continental were merely victims of a larger epidemic – the corporate takeover of lower Manhattan.
Little did anyone know at that time that a seemingly run-of-the-mill music venue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, would, by a series of fateful events, take over to carry the torch and continue a longstanding New York City tradition.
In an age when big business rules all, it’s true that a rock and roll club can still manage to live up to a core set of values held near and dear to the hearts of thousands of music fans, the legacy of the NYC rock and roll movement, and the idea of what that movement represents to those who have only read about it.
