The CBGB Bathroom Moves Out To The 'Burbs

what of the smell

Installation artist Justin Lowe will recreate the everything-encrusted bathroom of the defunct Bowery club CBGB at Hartford’s Wadsworth Atheneum next month. The bathroom will be one part of an installation that has a “classic werewolf transformation scene that plays out metaphorically throughout,” which makes me wonder if he’s going to somehow trigger the smells of that infamous loo so as to make people get all howling-at-the-moon mad. Fun fact: Lowe was born in 1976 — three years after the club opened, 30 before it was shut down and replaced by a clothing store-slash-venue for intimate Axl Rose shows. [Via / Pic via]
