'The First Time I Saw The Ramones' at 72 Gallery

There's another Ramones-related exhibit opening at 72 Gallery.

Here's what to expect at "The First Time I saw the Ramones," a solo show by Tom Hearn:

The exhibition showcases photography from the very early New York Punk scene and explores how your life can be changed when you find the band that defines your youth.

The show chronicles the night of July 22 1976 when Hearn was asked by his friend Legs McNeil to see the Ramones play at the Arcadia Ballroom in New Haven.

The opening reception is Thursday night from 6-9 at the The Great Frog, 72 Orchard St. between Broome and Grand. After tonight, you can check out the exhibit from noon to 8 p.m Tuesday through Sunday until June 6.

The folks behind The Great Frog created the gallery space in their rock 'n' roll ring shop and boutique.

I still have my ticket from the first time I saw them, August 12, 1976, when the band was on their first CA tour and played the Roxy in LA. That and the pick Johnny handed me from the stage in 1979 are still two of my most treasured possessions. Hey! Ho! I'll go!
