The First & Foremost 80s Dance Party
“CBGB & New York Bands Night”
Saturday, May 16, 2015
CBGB was a music club opened in New York City’s East Village in 1973. The club became a famed venue of punk rock and new wave bands like the Ramones, Television, Patti Smith Group, Blondie, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, and Talking Heads. CBGB's growing reputation drew more and more acts from outside New York City. On October 20 and 21, 1978, The Police played its first American gigs there. Meanwhile, CBGB became famed for the Misfits, Mink DeVille, the Dead Boys, the Dictators, the Fleshtones, the Voidoids, the Cramps, and The B-52’s.
