Good morning, East Village.

Marky Ramone tells City Room that he never actually wore the leather jacket being auctioned off as his own. He posted on Facebook: “It’s a fake. Yes, I had more than one coat. But this is not mine.” Update: The auction house tells City Room that it has taken the jacket off the block while it investigates its authenticity.

Speaking of CBs nostalgia, Gothamist quotes from a press release for “Bye Bye CBGB.” Opening at the Clic Gallery in SoHo on Jan. 30, the exhibition of Bruno Hadjadj’s sketches, photographs, and video from the last 48 hours of the rock club’s existence promises to pay “testament to the incredible endurance of CBGB’s influence.”

Delving still deeper into the neighborhood’s music heritage: Dangerous Minds posts some footage of Lead Belly, the blues and folk legend who lived at 414 East 10th Street. Researching Greenwich Village History writes that while living in the East Village, the bluesman would often stop into the Avenue B apartment of Elizabeth Barnicle, an NYU professor and folklorist, to record songs.

The city has corrected the spelling of the “School X-ing” sign outside of the Marta Valle High School on Stanton Street. The Lo-Down writes: “Turns out the city (and/or its contractors) are capable of working quickly when sufficiently humiliated.”

EV Grieve points to some photos by Kevin Shea Adams, of the remains of the old Hollywood Theatre. East Village Farm, the convenience store that currently occupies the long shuttered cinema’s building on Avenue A, is due to close at the end of the month.

Grieve notes two new delis on Avenue C and peeks inside the Tompkins Finest Deli, which will replace Avenue A Mini Market.

The Post visits Booker & Dax, the cocktail bar that opened in the former Momofuku Milk Bar space on Friday; Dave Arnold’s drinks are made using liquid nitrogen, centrifuges, and even a 1,500-degree, red-hot poker.

Daily Intel has an epic slideshow from the annual Mr. Lower East Side pageant at Bowery Poetry Club. Astor Place fixture Matthew Silver was in the running, but in the end photographer, director, and Rev. Jen cohort Jason “J-Boy” Thompson took the crown of Budweisers.

The Times reviews “Gob Squad’s Kitchen (You’ve Never Had It So Good),” an “absolute gem of a show” loosely inspired by Warhol’s movie “Kitchen.” Charles Isherwood writes, “The movie studio on the stage at the Public Theater, where this smart, goofy and surprisingly moving show is playing through Feb. 5, is a makeshift mockup of Andy Warhol’s Factory, or at least the filmmaking part of it, around 1965.”
