Photos: CBGB And The Old Bowery Live On... In Savannah, Georgia
Today is the beginning of the CBGB Festival, a series of shows, panel discussions, and movie screenings that will stretch on into the weekend. The festival just so happens to coincide with the filming of a movie about the storied Bowery rock haven starring Alan Rickman as CBGB impresario Hilly Kristal; the East Village of yore is being recreated not in New York (not even in a Long Island City soundstage!), but in Savannah, Georgia. We had photographer Dylan Wilson take some shots of the set to see if the spirit of the once-grungy strip can be recreated in The Peach State.
