NYC-Music

Where does one even begin when trying to catalog the wealth of musical riches this city has to offer? Beats me. We could play the Knicks a dozen times and barely scratch the surface. Instead, I'm gonna just make a beeline to Rock and Roll--more specifically--1970's era punk rock/New Wave. While there were dozens of clubs that catered to the genre, two stood out: Max's Kansas City and CBGB's. 6-maxs-kansas-city_medium

Max's KC was a hotspot for artists, poets, and musicians, alike. On a given night you could see folks like The Velvet Underground, New York Dolls or Iggy Pop on stage while Andy Warhol's gang caroused in one corner and Willem deKooning and Robert Maplethorpe brooded in the other. A half a mile south stood CBGB's, which attracted a younger, slightly more dangerous element while regularly hosting bands such as Patti Smith, Talking Heads, The Ramones, Blondie, Television, Richard Hell, The Heartbreakers, The Dictators and more. It was a golden age for Rock and Roll music--and New York City was the epicenter.

New York Dolls "Personality Crisis"

Patti Smith "Horses"

The Ramones "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend"

Television "Marquee Moon"

As I said, barely scratching the surface. Help me out, CHers. Jazz, Broadway, folk, classical, opera, rap, Brill Building, etc.

New York City.

Let's hear it!
