Last night I attended Kristian Hoffman’s CBGB West @ Trepany House at the Steve Allen Theater in Hollywood. Here’s the event info from KCRW’s website:
Original CBGB veteran Kristian Hoffman from the Mumps celebrates NY Punk Pioneers. Featuring David Scharff (Student Teachers), Ann Magnuson, Prince Poppycock, Steve Moramarco, The Roswell Sisters, Lisa Jenio, Crissy Guerrero, Liberty Larsen, Carolyn Edwards (3D Picnic), Paul Zone (The Fast), Candypants, John Easdale (Dramarama), Kira Vollman (Non Credo), and Cherry Vanilla!
It was an amazing night of music and storytelling, featuring both original music and covers of songs by The Mumps, Student Teachers, Ramones, Cramps, Talking Heads, Blondie (featuring original drummer Clem Burke on “Dreaming”), Runaways (Cherry Vanilla sang “Cherry Bomb”) and much more.
