From Brooklyn Vegan:
After four months of being closed for renovations and soundproofing (a mere week after they first opened), Rough Trade’s music venue finally has the green light to reopen. Tonight (3/21) there’s two shows: Rathborne and Streets of Laredo early, and How to Dress Well late (sold out). Saturday night (3/22) is Elysian Fields, Melvin Van Peebles Menage A Trois, and The Aspiring Me; and Sunday has Genesis Breyer P-Orridge in conversation with JG Thirlwell, which is free, followed by a book signing.
The full line-up is here.

“Against A Wall” is taken from the album Guilt Trips, out Oct. 22 on Last Gang Records.

Alan Rickman leads an all-star cast as Hilly Kristal, the financially unstable entrepreneur who opened the iconic club in 1973. CBGB, which stands for “Country Bluegrass Blues,” ultimately closed in 2006 over a rent dispute but lives on as the largest music festival in New York City.
“Why would you save for your dreams?” Rickman, as Kristal, asks in the trailer. “Why not live your dreams?”
Among the acts teased in the preview are Talking Heads, Blondie, The Ramones, Dead Boys, The Police, Iggy Pop and Patti Smith Group, among others. Malin Akerman, Rupert Grint, Ashley Greene, Johnny Galecki, Ryan Hurst, Justin Bartha, Donal Logue and Bradley Whitford are among the film’s stars.
