    CBGB

    Young, punkish, having backpacked to New York previously and slept on
    the floor of CBGB’s on the Bowery and fed myself on cheese and wine by attending gallery openings, ...

    What's exactly CBGB?

    It's also somewhat of a legendary club. Punk music was huge there in the 80's, I believe, so; many people know it for that. I've been there a few times when I was in Manhattan.

    CBGB, a dive. Ramones and Blondie started there.
    Bathrooms smell like puke, Heroin addicts
    no longer exists

    Cock roaches on the walls,
    Crabs crawling on my balls.
    I LOVE LIVING IN THE CITY

    Fear, Lee Ving
    I'm easily amused late at night...

    Didn't the owner sell CBGB to some commercial development group?
