Great Gildersleeves was the other rock/punk music venue on the Bowery in the late 70's and early 80's. Although it never reached the level of infamy of CBGB's, G.G. saw its share of major shows.

On April 1, 1979, Elvis Costello played here in a series of three NYC shows immediately after "the Ray Charles incident."

The Beastie Boys used to play here in their hardcore days ('82 and '83). On April 24, 1983, Adam Horovitz's band, The Young and the Useless, opened for Hüsker Dü and the Replacements (this was before he joined the Beastie Boys).

Sonic Youth played their 2nd show here on June 3, 1981.
