Save CBGBs

Download.com will be the exclusive webcaster for this Wednesday's Save CBGBs benefit concert in New York City. The show's lineup won't be announced until tomorrow but I know a few of the acts. I'm sworn to secrecy, of course. But I can tell you it's gonna be a great show.

For anyone who doesn't know. CBGBs is the birthplace of punk rock and was the early stomping grounds for artists such as The Ramones, Blondie, The Talking Heads, The Beastie Boys, and so many more it's ridiculous. More recently, acts such as The Strokes have emerged from CBGBs.

CBGBs' landlord has given them notice, but there is an indication that Mayor Bloomberg's office might be persuaded by public outcry to declare the legendary nightclub some sort of historical landmark or something. You can send a letter to the mayor (waaaay better than an email), or sign a petition to the mayor.
