以下這段介紹原文,取自維基百科:

CBGB (Country, BlueGrass, and Blues) was a music club at 315 Bowery at Bleecker Street in the borough of Manhattan in New York City.

Founded by Hilly Kristal in 1973, it was originally intended to feature its namesake musical styles, but became a forum for American punk and New Wave bands like Ramones, Misfits, Television, the Patti Smith Group, Mink DeVille, The Dead Boys, The Dictators, The Fleshtones, The Voidoids, The Cramps, Blondie, The Shirts, and Talking Heads. In later years, it would mainly become known for Hardcore punk with bands such as U.S. Chaos, Agnostic Front, Murphy’s Law, Cro-Mags, Warzone, Gorilla Biscuits, Sick of It All, and Youth of Today becoming synonymous with the club.

The club closed in October 2006. The final concert was performed by Patti Smith on October 15.
The full name is CBGB & OMFUG which stands for “Country Bluegrass Blues and Other Music For Uplifting Gormandizers”*. Gormandizer (gourmand) usually means a ravenous eater of food, but according to Kristal here it means “a voracious eater of … music”.[5] The club was also affectionately called simply “CB’s”. As its name implied, Kristal intended the bar to feature country, bluegrass, and blues music (along with poetry readings), but it became famous as the birthplace of the American punk movement. Perhaps most notably, the punk rock pioneers The Ramones had their first shows there.

被稱為美國PUNK發源地的紐約地標,(也許也是全球搖滾樂迷心中的朝聖地)CBGB,在以上簡潔的文字中,介紹了始末.不再贅文.

CBGB的結束營業,當然是很震撼的消息,隨著經營者Hilly Kristal在2007年過世,CBGB的傳奇故事正式點上了句號.不過,2008年又有關於CBGB即將由新的業主重新開幕的消息傳出.雖然始終只是捕風捉影,這樣的消息與樂迷的期待卻始終沒有停止過.

最近又有了最新的進展報導,據聞,新的業主,一直在紐約市尋找適合的地點,另起爐灶.首先的暖身行動,將是在7月5日~8日,於紐約市曼哈頓地區的30幾個酒吧合作.一連4天安排許多知名或新進樂團的演出.這個活動就稱之為”CBGB音樂節”活動的高潮將是有一天在紐約市的中央公園舞台演出的免費演唱會,據報導,目前已經有300多個樂團將會參與音樂節的演出..

另外一個已經證實的新聞是,命名為”CBGB”的電影,由Randall Miller執導.也即將開拍.名演員Alan Rickman將會飾演CBGB的原業主,Hilly Kristal. 哈利波特當中的”榮恩”也將在此片中飾演Punk樂團 The Dead Boys的主唱/吉他手.知名女演員Malin Akerman 也將演出Blondie 的主唱Debbie Harry.~ lingwei
