CBGBs Movie Trailer Here!

alternative CBGBs














Have you ever had a friend and then seem them in a movie? Like a big movie? I have a couple of times and it is always odd.

The inverse of that is when you see someone you know being portrayed by an actor in a movie and that is pretty weird as well and that has happened from time to time. Lester Bangs comes to mind. And now with the upcoming CBGB’s: The Movie there will be a plethora of people I’ve known to choose from, starting with Joey Ramone, Stiv Bators, Richard Hell and the owner of CBGB’s himself, Hilly Kristal.

So needless to say I have had sincere doubts about the whole movie thing-y but after seeing the Coming Attractions below one thing is very clear and it is something I should have known from the beginning: Alan Rickman (Professor Severus Snape to you) is a great actor and if nothing else,  the center of the movie will be very solid.

As for the rest of it: I am really bemused. I’ve seen so many terrible rock and roll movies, indeed, not so many good ones. And  this has nothing but hurdles:  what are the chances of it being one long series of rock star impressionists performing cameos?  Certainly that feels like a real possibility here.

So, yeah, I will be there to see some of my misbegotten youth up on stage for the world to admire but will I be happy about it… the teaser ain’t band
