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.
