Celebrating the spirit of the Bowery institution
Launching last year, the CBGB Festival returns for 2013 but is being relocated to October (just before CMJ). Expect the same mash-up of emerging artist showcases, music industry panels, and rock and roll film screenings. Highlights include a free concert on Times Square featuring My Morning Jacket and Grizzly Bear, a screening of the much-anticipated CBGB biopic, a keynote address from badass Duff McKagan, and a performance by drum legend Ginger Baker at Iridium. The spirit of the former Bowery institution lives on!
