CBGB Vegas

Hilly Kristal tells MTV about his plans for the legendary club that’s closing in September:

“We want to take a lot of this stuff with us, and I think we’re going to move to Las Vegas. I have some developers who have some really great space in the downtown area. So, I’d say sometime in spring we’ll be in Las Vegas. It’s a big undertaking, and these developers are putting the money into it, and I want to make sure that, for my benefit and theirs, we make this work. … I don’t have any choice. I have been looking for space in New York and the rent’s $125,000 a month on Broadway.”

Ugh. Vegas? I was hoping for Tokyo. At least he’s taking the urinals with him.
