The Birth of Punk in Cleveland, Akron & Kent Live Stream @ BOP STOP
When: Oct 09, 2020, 7:00pm - 8:00pm
Where: BOP STOP
Years before punk reared its ugly head in New York or London, a group of misfits, art students and disaffected youth in Cleveland, Akron & Kent, Ohio, many of them shocked by the massacre at Kent State University, spun off bands and artists that eventually moved on to New York and London as leaders of the new punk scene.
Obsessive musicologist Thomas Mulready, in collaboration with glam punk heroes Vanity Crash, turn their attention to the rise of a movement that still shakes the world. Fully produced from extensive first-person video interviews with the artists and scene makers, the livestreamed multi-media event includes original and classic songs from bands in the Cleveland/Akron/Kent axis who influenced generations.
Livestreamed events take place Thu 10/8 & Fri 10/9 (FREE with required ticket, donations accepted), streamed live from Cleveland’s own BOP STOP. Get your FREE ticket to the Fri 10/9 show here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-birth-of-punk-akron-kent-tickets-119382292651
