I’m going to have to break up with the New York Times if they keep running lame-ass stories that leave out/gloss over/state the obvious like this. Ostensibly, the reason for this one is the closing (finally!) of CBGB a few weeks ago and the upcoming CMJ Music Festival, but really, did anyone doubt that there were many dozens of other perfectly good music venues in the city? There’s even a few in Williamsburg–didja hear? There’s lots of young hipsters over there. They like the rock-n-roll music.
