Duff McKagan (GUNS N’ ROSES, VELVET REVOLVER, LOADED) will deliver the CBGB 2013 music festival keynote at the CBGB Music & Film Festival Conference, which will be held October 8-13 at Lower Manhattan’s Landmark Sunshine Theater with performances at venues throughout New York City and Brooklyn.

As an integral part of some of the most successful rock bands in history — GUNS N’ ROSES and VELVET REVOLVERMcKagan will deliver the CBGB 2013 music festival keynote. Leading the charge of rock music since the ’80s, McKagan continues to be a potent and venerable noisemaker in the industry. A multi-faceted artist today, when McKagan isn’t shredding on the stage, he effortlessly morphs into a journalist (SeattleWeekly.com, Playboy.com, ESPN.com), an actor (“Dead Pool”, “Sliders”), or a producer (biographical documentary “It’s So Easy (And Other Lies)”). Outside of the arts, he founded Meridian Rock, a wealth management firm aimed at musicians to help educate them about their finances. His versatility and his impact are the epitome of what it means to be an artist today.

CBGB has released an interactive mobile app for iOS and Android smartphones for free download, providing real-time updates on the music showcases, film screenings, and daytime conference schedules. The app lets users set up their own “favorites” schedule for the festival, connect with other fans, and explore previews of the full offering of the CBGB Festival. The CBGB app is available for free on the Apple App store, Google Play, or via direct download.

There are a number of ways to participate in the CBGB Festival. There are a limited number of tickets available to attend the red carpet premier of “CBGB The Movie” at the Landmark Theater on Tuesday, October 8. Tickets and badges for the “CBGB The Movie” red carpet premier experience and three additional different tiers of festival access are available on the CBGB web site. The CBGB VIP Platinum Badge is available through Ticketmaster.

An abbreviation for “Country, BlueGrass, and Blues”, CBGB holds a very important place in rock ‘n’ roll history when it began its auspicious origin as a music club on The Bowery in New York City’s East Village. Founded by the late Hilly Kristal in 1973, CBGB became a hotbed for American punk and new music with bands like RAMONES, B-52S, TALKING HEADS, TELEVISION, BLONDIE, THE PATTI SMITH GROUP and THE DEAD BOYS.
