CBGB's RIP & Rain Helps

Last night after Patti Smith's almost all cover set, CBGB's closed the doors on its Bowery location. There is talk of it being dismantled and rebuilt in Las Vegas. Weird. I was only there a handful of times, most recently about 10 years ago. I don’t have a right to lament it’s closing. I haven’t patronized the club in a decade. Ms Smith seemed to put it best when she said, "Kids, they'll find some other club. You just got a place, just some crappy place, that nobody wants, and you got one guy who believes in you, and you just do your thing. And anybody can do that, anywhere in the world, any time." Isn’t that what it’s all about, one guy/gal believing in you?
Rain postponed game 5 of the NLCS. Glavin gets an extra days rest and things are starting to look brighter for the Mets.
