An Evening With Debbie Harry
Wednesday, November 20 @ 8:00 pm
300 NE Second Ave., Miami, FL 33132 United States
Debbie Harry, musician, actor, and activist, is best known as the singer and front person of the punk/New Wave/pop band Blondie. After the group broke up in the early ‘80s, Harry embarked on a successful solo career, recording five solo albums. Meanwhile, Harry developed an acting career during which she amassed 30 film roles and several television appearances. In her memoir, Face It (Dey Street Books), she blends first-person essays, interviews conducted by journalist Sylvie Simmons, never-before-seen photographs, illustrations, and fan art installations to recount in intimate detail the downtown scene of 1970s New York City, a time and a place where Blondie played alongside the Ramones, Television, Talking Heads, Iggy Pop, and David Bowie and interacted with artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat. The book traces her path from commercial success and heroin addiction, to the near death of her partner and Blondie co-founder Chris Stein, bankruptcy, Blondie’s breakup, her acting career, and the return of the band. Harry will be joined by Chris Stein; and moderator Rob Roth, who is also creative director of Face It and director of this multimedia performance.
