Just got a call from someone repping the Varvatos brand, looking for a phone number for Care Bears on Fire. Varvatos himself wants them to play the Bowery/CBGB store opening party next Thursday, April 17 and, in the caller’s words, represent a “way into the future.” I think that one speaks for itself.
Purchase Tickets to John Varvatos Store Opening Party and Charity Concert at 315 Bowery the space that formerly housed CBGB’s
On April 17 in New York City, join VH1 Save The Music as we celebrate the opening of the newest John Varvatos store located at 315 Bowery, the space that formerly housed the seminal underground music club CBGB’s. This exclusive party and charity concert will be a flashback to the extraordinary history of CBGB’s, but unleash the excitement of what’s happening in music today. In partnership with Vh1 Save the Music, the store will open with a live performance featuring house band, The Losers Lounge, backing up iconic performers who will celebrate the venue’s original heritage.
