A PIECE OF THE DREAM: VARVATOS MOVES INTO CBGBs

cbgb3_h.jpgIt's official- punk is dead and has been replaced with full on commercialism. CBGBs, the legendary music club that was shut down last year, is now being taken over by designer John Varvatos. The designer (who, in case you hadn't noticed, likes the rock music) is hoping to open a store in the 3,300-square-foot space next spring. Among its possible features are a stage for in-store performances, a special "315 Bowery" collection, and a selection of clothes geared to the "rock and roll customer." As for actual rock and roll musicians, Varvatos promises to put some of the store's proceeds toward an artist development fund. (Source:men.style.com)
