Black Friday 2017

I AM Black Friday 2017!

I will be in Pittsburgh at the Get Hip Record Store, telling the stories behind the photos, signing photos and enjoying the live music.

The 20% discount applies to the photos and photo souvenirs, so think of all your rock n roll friends and collectors.  If you're not in Pittsburgh, Get Hip Mail Order and I can make your gift giving easy.  Just reach out to us:  Get Hip Mail Order . You can also contact Punk Turns 30 for a list of images or inquiries about specific images.

Among the musical artists performing this weekend is my lifelong friend, Frank Secich.  I first met Frank in 1979 when he toured with Stiv Bators in what I call the Latter Day Dead Boys.  Both Jeff Magnum and Cheetah Chrome weren't in the band, and their parts were played by Frank (on bass) and George Cabaniss, of Akron's Hammer Damage on guitar.  Back then, we were calling him Georgie Harrison, though.  Just to be sure, though, Jimmy Zero was and always will be the pop king of the Dead Boys.  This Dead Boys line up morphed into the Disconnected Band.  Johnny Blitz did play these early 1979 dates with Stiv, but later that year, he left the band and David Quinton, a teenager from Toronto, and drummer for The Mods was in.  Frank will be reading from his memoir, Circumstantial Evidence and playing the songs he wrote with Stiv, and also from his Blue Ash days and from his current project, Deadbeat Poets.

Zack Keim, who performs on Sunday, fronts the Nox Boys from PGH suburb, Blawnox.  I'm proud to say I shot many photos that are included on their debut album on Get Hip.  Zack is, like me, a Woody Guthrie-inspired punk and he'll be doing his folk-agit prop thing.
