The clock is ticking, but hope is still very much alive.

CBGB's, the historic rock club located in lower Manhattan's Bowery district that is recognized worldwide as ground zero for punk and an incubator for undiscovered bands, is in danger of being shut down. That is, unless a new lease is signed with the club's landlord, the nonprofit Bowery Residents Committee (BRC), by Aug. 31.
