On today’s show.. Sid Vicious is 55, The Dirty Heads new vid, and CBGB is now a music festival.
First off today, we’d like to wish a very happy birthday today a 55 year-old Sid Vicious. Yep, that’s right, if Sid the kid were still alive today, he would be 55-years-old. As we all know Sid died at the young age of 21 in an apartment building. If he survived all these years how do think Sid would be today? We’ll never know.
Our buddies in the Dirty Heads have just released a brand new video for their latest single. You know the Dirty Heads right? A bunch of fun dudes from Huntington Beach. Here’s a clip from Spread Too Thin.
And finally today, as everyone knows CBGB, the legendary New York City music venue, was shut down and is now a John Varvatos clothing store. I was never able to see a show there but I went to the store once to check it out. I tried to take a picture of a cool Ramones poster with my cell phone, and some little dork in a 15 hundred dollar outfit walks up to me and tells me no photos. Thats how I knew the rock was dead. But apparently the group who owns the CBGB name is trying to revive the brand by turning CBGB into a weeklong music festival in New York City. Shows will be hosted everywhere from Bowery Ballroom to The Trash Bar. Could be a good time. We’ll have to see.
