Glenn Horowitz opened an exhibition of photographer Tom Hearn’s vintage Punk Rock photographs including previously unseen images of Debbie Harry, The Ramones, Lou Reed and John Cale. The event was in collaboration with the 20th anniversary edition of Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk by Legs McNeil and Gillian McCain, which contains a new photo insert with many of Hearn’s photos. McNeil and McCain read passages from their seminal book.
