CBGB Lives!

Well, not quite, but when the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Annex opens in the basement of 76 Mercer Street in Soho on Tuesday, it'll display some familiar relics: "'Here comes the phone booth,' somebody said, and in rolled the wooden phone box from CBGB, plastered with decades-old stickers like a punk sarcophagus. Workers stood it up beside graffitied wall sections from that landmark club, along with two of its loudspeakers and a metal frame for the 'CBGB & OMFUG' awning that hung over 315 Bowery until the place closed two years ago."
