11 Mar Our Old East Village Neighbor
This week we’ve been scouring through music history for an upcoming project.
Some of the best throwbacks comes from this fantastic collection from CBGB’s 70’s House Photographer David Godlis.
From Mashable’s Retronaut:
The music scene, like New York, was also sorely in need of repair. But in the most unlikely of all places — in the slumping New York City’s infamous Bowery, among the skid row bums on loser’s lane, far away from the Upper East Side and Upper West Side of Manhattan — a group of like-minded musicians and artists had their sights set on the future. In a small, dingy club, they would rewrite the past and set a template for the last quarter century in music, fashion, art, literature and film.
Research has its perks sometimes.
