April 1977 When Punk Broke Big in LA with Jenny Lens Punk Photos

April 1977 was THE month LA punks came out in force. A movement was coalescing. New York, England, San Francisco and LA creatives were changing world music and culture, forever.

I was there, photographing everywhere, everything and everyone!

We gathered for Cheap Trick opening for the Runaways, Santa Monica Civic Auditorium (April 1), opening of Bomp Records Store (April 9), Television (April 14), Blondie opening for Iggy, with the Sales Brothers and David Bowie (April 15), Bomp again with the Damned (April 16), Orpheum show that night with Germs, Zeros and Weirdos, Damned at the Starwood (April 17 and 18), and Screamers party for the Damned (April 18). And more.

Buy photos! Please tell folks. Thanks!
