Blondie's Debbie Harry and Chris Stein to chat about Stein's new photo book at NYC Q&A event tonight

© Point of View by Chris Stein, Rizzoli, 2018/Photography © Chris SteinBlondie frontwoman Debbie Harry and guitarist Chris Stein will take part in a Q&A event tonight at Cooper Union in New York City that will focus on Stein's new photography book, Point of View: Me, New York City, and the Punk Scene.

The event, which begins at 6:30 p.m. ET, is free, while seating will be first come, first served.

The conversation will be moderated by Rob Roth, Blondie's creative director. Stein will sign copies of his book at the end of the event.

Point of View features a wide range of photographs Stein took throughout the 1970s documenting the downtown New York City music scene. The pics include self-portraits and candid shots of such celebs as Harry, artist Andy Warhol and author William Burroughs. The book also features gritty photos depicting life in various locations of downtown Manhattan, including children sitting on stoops, dilapidated buildings, graffiti-covered subway cars and the club scene of the Bowery.

In other Blondie-related news, Harry has scored her first charting single on Billboard's Alternative Songs tally since 1990 thanks to her contribution to alternative artist Just Loud's new tune "Soul Train." The track debuts at #40 on the chart. Debbie last cracked the top 40 of the Alternative Songs chart with her solo tune "Kiss It Better," which peaked at #12 in January of 1990.

Blondie's next concert will be on February 16, 2019, at the KAABOO Cayman festival on Grand Cayman island. The band also will be performing on March 15 and 16 in Havana, Cuba, as part of their "Blondie in Havana" cultural-exchange experience.
