One Way or Another
Live review of Blondie at the Moody
DAILY Music  September 30, 2011, by Raoul Hernandez
"...At 66, Deborah Harry’s siren call wafts as hypnotic it did in 1976, when Blondie’s eponymous debut led that year’s CBGBs class along with the Ramones’ self-titled bow. Born in Miami and raised in New Jersey, the singer still courses a hot-n-cool coo, flowing like the Gulf Stream with just enough street snarl..."

Tramp On Your Street
Review of Richard Hell's reading at Justine's
DAILY Music  September 28, 2011, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Last night at Justine’s Brasserie on East Fifth Street, punk godhead Richard Hell read from a rock & roll memoir picked up this month by Patti Smith’s Just Us Kids publisher Ecco. Vintage CBGBs excess recalled in Baudelairian detail transformed the 100-plus assembly into an East Village literary cell..."

Monster Magnet Comic Con: Dave Wyndorf
A G-rated ‘Last Patrol’ from the Silver Age
DAILY Music  November 26, 2013, by Michael Toland
"...And he was working with this young guy, not super new, but rather new: Frank Miller. They came to CBGBs to see us and the next thing you know, Denny had talked with Frank..."

C3 Presents acquires Emo's
Music Story  February 15, 2013, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Eric "Emo" Hartman, now general manager of the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz, walks past his old Sixth Street haunt most days on his way to work, calling the dark, empty space "sad." Worse, sometimes, is driving past Emo's East, "a punk rock palace" far removed from the CBGBs-like dive he named after his "self-inflicted nickname," acquired in his early bar years when he attempted to scare off a persistent female by throwing the name Emo at her – as in hometown Chicago comedian Emo Philips...."

Hey Ho, Let’s Go!
Thumbs up for Joey Ramone's new solo disc
DAILY Music  July 18, 2012, by Jim Caligiuri
"...My living in New York in the Eighties and Nineties meant the Ramones were a local band. I wasn’t hip enough to have seen them at CBGBs, but I did catch them a few times after punk broke..."

Jingle Bell Rock and Blues
Two legendary Austin bands reunite for the holidaze.
DAILY Music  December 21, 2007, by Margaret Moser
"...They played my reception at Soap Creek Saloon after my first wedding in 1978, when Munoz was still the guitarist. A year later, I went to New York for their first gig at CBGBs, back at a time when the Police were touring in a station wagon and it seemed like punk would save the world..."

DAILY Music  November 21, 2007, by Austin Powell
"...I had to learn all of that in about two weeks. OTR: How familiar were you with the group before then? MR: We all knew each other from CBGBs and Max’s Kansas City, which was another club that we all used to hang out in..."

John Cale (and Friends) Reviewed
Music Story  October 29, 2004, by Margaret Moser
"...Nikides played guitar for the latter half of Cale's '79-'80 Sabotage tour, but those searing leads bear little resemblance to the fine and moody National Steel performances on Man of Steel. With a voice cured in the smoke of countless nightclubs, Nikides travels a contemporary road of nine captivating, melancholy compositions and a fine rendering of the Rolling Stones' "Play With Fire." "I'm not easily impressed," he sings on "Heartbreak Lost & Found," but he pays homage to the Delta bluesmen on "Dusted." Deerfrance was the honey-voiced, 6-foot, pink-haired punk rock darling of CBGBs in the late-Seventies when Cale tapped her for the band..."

The Neal Pollack Invasion
Music Review  November 21, 2003, by Jerry Renshaw
"...Then along comes Neal Pollack, backed by Jim Roll, Dakota Smith, and a few others. You know what you're in for on the very first song as Pollack yowls, "New York City/Andy Warhol/CBGBs/Barbara Walters is a pile of shit" on "New York City." Musically, it's not bad, the band borrowing liberally from throughout recent rock & roll history, except for an incredibly overbearing snare sound..."

Record Reviews
Music Review  March 7, 1997
"...After all, few groups -- especially one like this NY quartet with indie, no-wave credibility to burn -- have no identity whatsoever. Even the press kit, with raves from all the best publications, doesn't know what to make of 'em; Patti Smith and late-Seventies CBGBs seem to be the only consensus..."

A Room of One's Own
Austin's Newest Record Stores Carve out Their Niche
Music Story  January 19, 1996
"...The broadest of the newcomers (and the newest, having opened in September) is Stashus Mule, but even if you'll find Pearl Jam or Beatles CDs there, the store has a strong post-punk identity, epitomized by what owner Lou Cioci refers to as his "shrines." One wall is like a college radio history lesson, from CBGBs to Chicago hardcore to Seattle. Others display prodigious amounts of Replacements and R.E.M..."
