Debbie Harry & Chris Stein in Conversation

Founding members of pioneering new wave band Blondie, Debbie Harry and Chris Stein explore their own history and discuss their lives in music.

Leading the forefront of the downtown post punk and new wave scene, Blondie are the epitome of New York City cool. Frontwoman Debbie Harry is a musician, actress and activist: her band Blondie developed a new sound that merged the worlds of rock, punk, disco, reggae and hip-hop, creating classic records that have entered music history. She is accompanied by Chris Stein, the co-founder, guitarist and songwriter of the band and continued collaborator.

Following the launch of Harry’s memoir, Face It, and Stein’s highly acclaimed photo works Negative and Point of View, they sit down together to talk music, life and career, alongside moderator Rob Roth. The conversation is illuminated with seminal images of the band and New York City from Harry’s autobiography and Stein’s books, as well as film clips, fan art, book readings and audience Q&As.
