The Pains of Being Pure at Heart play CBGB Fest's free Summerstage show on 07.07

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart play CBGB Fest's free Summerstage show on 07.07

The recently revived CBGB legacy celebrates its return to New York with a four day festival from July 5th to 8th, 2012. Focusing on both legendary acts and emerging young bands, the event will not only feature music, but film premieres and screenings, as well as industry panels for musicians. The highlight show is a free concert at Summerstage in Central Park on July 7 featuring Guided By Voices, The Pains Of Being Pure at Heart, War On Drugs and Cloud Nothings. Lots of "original regulars" of the old CBGB's will be performing, including Liv Tyler's mother, ex model, Playboy Playmate and queen of groupies Bebe Buell and her band at Highline Ballroom on July 5, and NY Dolls' frontman David Johansen at Sullivan Hall on that same night. Lots of emerging NYC artists will be involved too, more about this in the next few days. For detailed information on line up schedules and to purchase festival passes go here. - Dave Cromwell
