Hardcore legends BAD BRAINS will help close New York City's famed club CBGB next week (09-11OCT06), with three shows featuring the group's original lineup. The club, which launched the careers of the Ramones and Blondie, will host its last show on 15 October (06) with headliner Patti Smith. The legendary underground rock club is relocating to Las Vegas, Nevada, after a legal dispute with a neighbourhood commission. The new club is expected to open in spring 2008.
