Are you free in October? Then you might want to head to NYC for this. From Spin:
Legendary New York venue CBGB may have shuttered its doors in 2006, but the brand is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year with the second annual CBGB Music & Film Festival, happening from October 9 to 13 in NYC. The five-day event will take place in various locations throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn, with the Landmark Sunshine Theater on East Houston Street serving as the hub for the conference and cinema showcase.
According to an official announcement, the 2013 installment of CBGB Fest will be "NYC's largest ever showcase of music, film, art, social awareness, entertainment industry workshops and conferences." The music portion will feature a total of 700 artists performing in more than 175 venues; the film segment will host approximately 100 screenings of music-themed flicks and premiere an estimated 40 new movies, many of which will be followed up with Q&A sessions with directors, producers, and actors.
