Lots of places are antithetical to punk, yet seem to have punk scenes. I’m sure Vegas has a raging scene, in part because it’s such a sort of plastic kind of city that caters to tourists… that’s bound to create young people looking for some cultural authenticity that they can be involved with.
Well, it’s closed, for one - I think it’s a clothing store or some such now. And besides… they re-opened it… in Vegas…
The clothing store shut down too - I heard about CBGBs moving years ago but did they ever open a venue? All I can find now is a website selling merch. In any event, that’s not the Bowery either but I guess it could never survive the gentrification anyway. And, things change and maybe I’m too negative. No disrespect was intended to any local punk scene in Las Vegas either.
Sam Smith and Kim Petras did something “Unholy” and made a number one hit song. After months of teasing the song on TikTok, and creating viral moments in the process, “Unholy” was officially released on September 22, 2022.
Now, after multiple weeks on streaming platforms and radio airwaves, paired with a few live performances, the song has reached number one in the United States. The duo have now made history being the first nonbinary (Smith) and transgender (Petras) artists to have a number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100.
