Some of you may have noticed this in my sig, but I felt it important to start a thread about this because it is very important to me and a lot of other people...

"CBGB is a symbol of raw American energy for 31 years CBGB has provided a space for new creativity in music and art, a spotlight for young talent, and a unique safe-space to pursue art and free expression. CBs has always kept its prices affordable for all music lovers, evolved to fill the needs of the music and cultural communities of New York City, and jump started the careers of thousands of performers."

CBGBs started the career of the Ramones (one of my most favorite bands, the band that started Punk music!), Blondie, the B52s, the Talking Heads, the Police, etc...

It has been one of my life-long dreams to visit this place and I cannot believe they would try to shut this place down...please take 5 minutes and help out, and don't think "oh but petitions never make a difference blablabla...", every bit helps, you can also send an email to Mayor Bloomberg and the NYC News...

Please do not comment if you mean to insult or say you don't care, it IS widely known that the Ramones were one of the founding bands of Punk, if you do not agree, please do so in a civilized way...
