Punk acolytes know the iconography (CGBG, Ramones, Talking Heads, Max’s Kansas City), have read the biographical accounts and spent time sifting through record bins in search of that era’s output. But Blondie members Debbie Harry and Chris Stein actually lived through the city’s late-’70s and early -’80s downtown punk uprising. The onetime new-wave power couple will reflect on that period’s seismic subcultural shift, share stories from the trenches and put it all into a contemporary perspective with the moderator, senior Rolling Stone critic and Love Goes to Buildings on Fire author Will Hermes.
