A club in NY where many punk and other type of rock bands got their start.
My friends played a gig at CBGB's!

CBGB (country bluegrass blues)
(title later added:) & OMFUG (other music for uplifting gormandizers).
The epicenter of the New York Punk Scene, with musicians such as the Ramones, the Talking Heads, and Debbie Harry all getting their start here.
Despite it's name, CBGB's did not showcase any country music.
