Pop Culture Roundup Aug. 30, 2007

Hilly Kristal, founder of New York City's famed CBGBs club has died.

Kristal founded the club in 1973 to showcase bluegrass and country acts, but it quickly became known as a breeding ground for experimental and punk music. Throughout the 1970s and '80s, the club served as a launching pad for Blondie, the Talking Heads, Television, Living Colour, Patti Smith and the Ramones, among many others.


Fred Hembeck has posted, and is selling, some great new Marvel Comics-based art.
