CBGB initiates last minute 30 date fundraising festival

According to Blabbermouth, CBGB founder and owner Hilly Kristal is putting on a 30 date festival of “big-name acts” in a last-ditch effort to save the legendary club. Names like Patti Smith and David Byrne have been bandied about but nothing is firm yet. Details to be announced once I hear them.
