landlord won't renew lease for cbgb club
after 32 years, punk mecca asked to 'vacate the premises'
by larry mcshane, ap

new york (aug. 31) - as several hundred enthusiastic supporters rallied to
keep cbgb's open, the landlord of the venerable punk club announced wednesday
that the lease on the
32-year-old landmark will not be renewed.
the bowery residents' committee, landlord of the building on the bowery,
"believes it is in the best interest of our clients - the homeless and neediest
new yorkers - to sever this relationship," brc executive director muzzy
rosenblatt said.
the existing lease was to expire at midnight wednesday. the statement from
rosenblatt called for cbgb's to "vacate the premises both voluntarily and
expeditiously" - a scenario that appeared unlikely, given the promises of little
steven van zandt and others to wage a battle to the end on behalf of the bar that
launched punk rock.
"we're not going without a fight," said van zandt, who was joined at the
rally by "sopranos" co-stars tony sirico and joe pantoliano. "if the eviction
proceedings start tomorrow, which i hope it doesn't, we'll fight it in the courts."
the rally was aimed at putting public pressure on rosenblatt. but while gavin
rossdale was leading his new band, institute, through a rollicking version of
"machinehead," the decision on booting the club had already been made.
even the hardy cbgb supporters at the rally, where public enemy and blondie
were also scheduled to perform, seemed resigned to the club's demise.

"it doesn't look hopeful," said lucky pierre, 26, a new york university
student. "but we'll keep the fires burning until the last minute."
an increasingly frustrated van zandt blasted rosenblatt for the inability to
reach a new agreement. the e street band guitarist, "sopranos" star and radio
show host entered the negotiations about six weeks ago.
the club's owner, hilly kristal, also was not backing down.
"we intend to stay," he declared. "this is not a eulogy. there's no reason
why we shouldn't come to an understanding."
it was kristal who started the club in december 1973, creating a space that
eventually spawned such acts as the ramones, blondie and the talking heads. the
club eventually gained an international reputation as the birthplace of punk.
some of the club's supporters at the rally echoed '70s fashion statements,
sporting green hair, safety pin earrings and black ramones t-shirts.

among them was 45-year-old rochelle goldman, who was wearing a "save cbgb"
t-shirt complemented by assorted cbgb's wristbands dangling from both arms.
"people say it's a museum, but i'm still going there," she declared. "i'm an old
punk."
rosenblatt's group - an agency that aids the homeless - holds a 45-year lease
on the building and houses 250 homeless people above the club. cbgb is its
lone commercial tenant; their rent feud dates back five years, when the
committee went to court to collect more than $300,000 in back rent from the club.
the current rent is $19,000 a month, although that figure was expected to at
least double under any new lease. the club's landlord-tenant woes were
reminiscent of the fight over the bottom line, the vintage greenwich village club
that closed in december 2003.
cbgb won a legal decision earlier this month when a manhattan civil court
judge ruled that the club couldn't be evicted for a bookkeeping mistake that left
kristal about $100,000 behind in his rent.
not even the intervention of mayor michael bloomberg, who offered to mediate
the dispute, could resolve the problem. bloomberg said he hoped to find cbgb's
a new location in the city.

a&e want me to send out a brief message letting everyone know that they are
going to donate all of the profits from their merchandise sales to select
hurricane relief funds during the month of september - for both people and
animals that are victims of the storms. so know that when you stock up on
indigo merch, you are helping needy families and their stray pets.  also, they
are using biodiesel fuel everywhere it is available for the bus on the tour.

i think its great to see that a&e are helping out, and not only helping
out the people but helping the animals. last week, my wife and i donated
to help the animals. as desperate of a situation as it is for the people,
we thought the animals deserved a fighting chance too. we sent money to
noah's wish.

http://www.noahswish.org/

as they say on the website, "noah's wish is a not-for-profit, animal
welfare organization, with a straightforward mission.  we exist to keep
animals alive during disasters.  that's it." their website has a link that
they have gotten up for updates to the hurricane relief effort. as of
yesterday they were still in slidell, la. as of monday they had rescued
over 400 animals. woohoo.

it looks like total devastation down there, but there is such positivity
happening right now.

all the best to all of you guys-
todd

subject:      selling a large part of my indigo girls collection - they can all
              be yours.
mime-version: 1.0
content-type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"; format=flowed

hi folks -
i'm getting rid of the indigo girls promos and some illicit stuff and some
well, interesting stuff...these are all original releases. i gotta get $$
for a trip and pay for car repairs and other wonderful debts...

ebay is fine but i wants fans to have them, a great deal of these items, i
received thru some friend, sheer luck or paying through the roof.

there are 16 cds in all. none of these are burns. all have their original
cases - except for the shades of indigo cd - which is mising the original
cover.

i'm looking for a minimum of $150 for all of it - which would take care of
a debt and get me down to my trip next week. paypal would be preferred payment.

let me know what items you want - i will sell individually - tho i'd like
to get it all out as easily as possible.

the list
indigo girls singles
peace tonight single
go single
shed your skin - red
shed your skin - blue
joking single - import from uk
galileo single w/ the snippets from rites of passage.
bury my heart at wounded knee
touch me fall
power of two
i dont wanna talk about it (yes, the pretty rare single)

not singles -
4.5
shades of indigo
the "indigo girls starter kit" (target stores promo)
cold beer and remote control (5 song cd)

the silver pressed bootlegs
history of us, (one of the rare ones that was made and everyone got a
glitched one - this one is one of the few without the glitch)
uptown girls

i figure - 150 is waay on the low side - as i have seen people spent well
above that on ebay for maybe 4 items on the list. but that's at least what
i want for all of them...175 or cookies or some sort of reason why you
really want them is fine.

hope to hear from you - my hubby looked at me as if i was insane - i'm not
- i mean - the indigo girls mean a tremendous amount to me - but getting $$
is well better than looking at cds that i never listen to anymore.

mike r.
