As the feature film CBGB is about to hit theaters, New York University's Fales Library is unveiling archival videos, fliers, clippings and other memorabilia from the legendary punk club -- documented by music fans Pat Ivers and Emily Armstrong back in the day -- as part of their Downtown Collection.
On Thursday at Bowery Electric, (Ivers and Armstrong) will screen some of their vintage footage alongside performances by Cheetah Chrome, the New York Dolls' Syl Sylvain, the Sex Pistols' Glen Matlock and more as part of the CBGB Festival.
