CBGB and MVD Will Release Live CDs

CMJ news reports:

CBGB and MVD Entertainment are pairing up to immortalize the legacy of CBGB on CD. MVD, a company itself that benefited from the publicity that CBGB and its founder, the late Hilly Kristal, afforded visionary artists, is putting out a series of albums that will feature a full live performance at the famed club. Mooney Suzuki, the Queers, and H20 will be the first set of bands to have their performances released, and MVD expects to have another set of performances out by the end of the year. As part of the partnership, MVD is honoring Kristal’s legacy and vision, and donating a portion of the sales to the Hilly Kristal Foundation For Musicians And Artists.
