'CBGB' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Thu Dec 5, 2013 at 10:00 AM PST by

Randall Miller's music-centered drama will rock Blu-ray at the end of the month.

In an early announcement to retailers, XLrator Meda is bringing 'CBGB' to Blu-ray on December 31.

'CBGB' looks at New York’s dynamic punk rock scene through the lens of the ground-breaking Lower East Side club started by eccentric Hilly Kristal in 1973 originally as a home for “country, bluegrass and blues” (thus the club’s name) and which showcased cutting-edge bands through its closing in 2006. The Talking Heads, Patti Smith, The Ramones, Blondie, The Dead Boys, Bad Brains, Green Day, Soul Asylum, The Police, Bruce Springsteen, Everclear, George Thorogood, The Velvet Underground, Sonic Youth, The Black Crowes, The Flaming Lips, The Goo Goo Dolls, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The B-52s, The Runaways, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Tool and The Wallflowers are just some of the thousands of bands that played the club over the years.

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.99.
