Bowery Mission

While hundreds of thousands of young people greeted the last year of the millennium in Times Square, waiting for the ball to drop before scurrying home along Giuliani's squeaky-clean streets, a rather more bohemian crowd gathered at another landmark: Downtown's venerable CBGB. Where icons like Debbie Harry and the Ramones and Richard Hell and the Voidoids once ruled the stage, Japanese pop-punk band Cibo Matto held sway over the Bowery night.
