Vans House Party Curated by Blondie

House Of Vans Blondie

This year, the Vans House Parties Series has each headlining artist acting as a curator, hand-picking all supporting talent and will be creating a personalized visual art experience for fans. To support and elevate emerging talent, one unsigned musician will be chosen by the headliner to open each Vans House Party show. For their show, Blondie has asked indie-rock goddess Liz Phair to open and former Cherry Glazerr keyboardist SASAMI as the unsigned support act.

The visual art experience will feature Blondie co-founder, songwriter and guitarist Chris Stein’s photographic work which has been featured in galleries and press around the world. House of Vans is honored to be showcasing works from his upcoming new book POINT OF VIEW: Me, New York City and the Punk Scene, set for release in November 2018. For the duration of the 1970s, Stein kept an unrivaled photographic record of the downtown New York City scene and punk’s golden age. The highly personal and visually arresting images will take attendees from self-portraits in Chris' run-down East-Village apartment to candid photographs of pop-cultural icons of the time and evocative shots of New York City streetscapes in all their most longed-for romance and dereliction. Visual artist and director, Rob Roth will also present video and print ‘mash-ups’ of Chris Stein’s photographs.
