Sunday Matinee

Maybe I should make this a regular feature too, now that CBGB has been turned into a john varvatos boutique. I mean, I actually like john varvatos stuff, and I know they kept some of the CBGB character, but come on. It's like turning St. Patrick's Cathedral into a Walmart. OK, not quite like that, but you get my point.

Anyway.


Gorilla Biscuits's first show at CBs. August 31, 1986...




And their last, nearly 20 years to the day later. September 3, 2006.



Rest in peace, Hilly.

Man. You just reminded me of so many awesome shows. I will probably never forget the first time I saw the Gloom Room. It was so rad.

And then I found this video, I'm the dude standing in the front looking dumb and wiping sweat off my face (about 2 years ago).

Haha, this was a rad band too. I think they're still around.

Hopefully none of these links self destruct.

anon 6:01—I meant it was their last show at CBs. Suppose I could have made that clearer.
