The impressively prolific Brooklyn Vegan has been all over the whole CBGB's closing/benefit concerts situation, also dropping the heads up yesterday that Air America's Morning Sedition will be broadcasting from the famed NYC rock club on Friday morning. Tune in then, or just download the podcast later.
As the final month of CBGB's lease continues, RANA brings the rawk to the Bowery tonite, with solid support from Sound of Urchin (who also opened for them at the Entry) & Big Machine. I've seen RANA play there on a few occasions, and (as per usual) they aren't to be missed. I figured these Ramones & Talking Heads live covers were appropriate, given tonite's event.
ETA: A new RANA convert? Brooklyn Vegan made it out to said show & has loads of photos to prove it. It sounds like BV enjoyed his first dose of the live RANAROCK experience, as he also dropped the heads up that the band will be holding a Thursday nite residency at NYC's Tribeca Rock Club this fall (9/15, 9/22, 9/29, 10/6). BV pal The Outer Edges has more pix.
BTW: Happy 26th Birthday-after to my LA-via-NYC-via-Boston pal KM.
ETA: July 17th's Constantines recap forthcoming
