The Talking Heads at CBGB’s (and a Virtual Tour of the Joint)

CBGB’s was a longtime mecca of the New York music scene, a venue that helped launch the Ramones, Patti Smith, Blondie, and the Talking Heads onto the national stage. And then it closed in 2006. If you never visited the club on Bowery and Bleecker Streets, you can still take a pretty vivid virtual tour. It starts in the bathroom and you then can wind your way through the rest of the joint. Above, we’ve posted some vintage footage of the Talking Heads performing “Psycho Killer” at CBGB’s, somewhere back in the mid-70s. We’ve also added this clip to our YouTube Favorites.
