New York City, CBGB’s 14 October 2006
Set List: Hanging on the telephone > Call me > The tide is high > The dream’s lost on me > I wanna be your boyfriend > Mother of earth > Rip her to shreds > One way or another > Poison heart > Please please

I’ve never seen so many camera flashes go off at a show.  It was bizarre. It was Blondie ‘opening’ for the Dictators. It was the second-to-last night before CBGB’s closed down for good… When asked about my most memorable shows in New York City, I always have a hard time deciding between Erykah Badu in a Tribeca basement and this one. As a matter of fact, I still get the chills listening to Blondie’s acoustic version of “Hanging on the telephone”.
Please excuse the not so pristine recording quality. There was a lot of pushing and shoving, let alone this being a hand held shot to begin with. .

Tools: Sony HDR-HC1, Sony ECMHST1

CBGB Nostalgia Vol. 4 | Patti Smith

Posted in Shorts by unartignyc on 2009/08/04

October 15, 2006. Patti Smith put the final nail into CBGB’s coffin with a 3 hour long set. Instead of offensively priced drinks, one can now buy high end consumer level fashion items inside these legendary walls. Below are 33 minutes of the last beat of CB’s dying heart and a few thoughts on the “Home of Underground Rock” by Steve Trimboli, written in 2004.

[Steve Trimboli | Goodbye Blue Monday & Scrapbar]
when i died, as my life was flashing before my eyes on the last day of april in 1995, i saw that we were a moment in time. that we’re all moments in time. my dad, steve (there were a few uncles, but no one loved me as much as him) chose not to go to the wake or funeral. instead, he came the following morning and filled my stairway with wonderful white flowers and so much love. i don’t think anyone knows just how much he loved me. a couple of days later, he met with the doctor (we’ll use that word instead of “landlord”). they told him that they can give me a transfusion (that’s another word for “lease”) and that dad could take care of me for another five years . i watched as he looked at the walls, his fingers touching the stone, and i flooded his heart and mind with memories and promises. how odd it was to hear him say, “no. i don’t think so. i think it was enough.” well, CBGB’s was very lucky and blessed, but sits in a different world now. go there and look around. it doesn’t belong there anymore. the east village and lower east side has become the “lower-upper-east side”. that place died ten years ago anyway. it’s over. trust me. i know dead.

CBGB Nostalgia Vol. 2 | Blondie

Posted in Shorts by unartignyc on 2009/07/31

October 14, 2006. The night before CBGB’s doors closed for good. On stage, Blondie.  Easily one of the most goosebumpy moments I have ever experienced in any New York City club.  Below is our footage from said night, presented here for the very first time.

CBGB Nostalgia Vol. 1 | Angry Samoans

Posted in Shorts by unartignyc on 2009/07/30

On September 08, 2006 the Angry Samoans set foot onto the world’s second most famous stage one last time. Even though un:ART:ig also documented a huge ToddP show in Brooklyn earlier that night, we managed to rush over to Manhattan’s East Village just in time to catch this classics filled performance. Recorded from CBGB’s prime shooting spot, the so called ‘crow nest’, we hope you’ll enjoy the concentrated highlights presented in the little piece below.
