"The Wild, The Beautiful, & The Damned!" is an extensive collection of Punk and Rock photos from the 1970's San Francisco Bay Area scene.

Larry Schorr was an integral part of the music scene in 1970's San Francisco Bay Area, both as a fan and participant. Larry roomed with Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys) when Jello was still Eric Boucher from Boulder and thinking of calling himself 'Occupant'.

On 35mm film, Larry caught history in the making front-row at the final Sex Pistols show, and perhaps the first ever Dead Kennedys show.Through his lens, he captured early and even first US tours from Blondie, The Buzzcocks, The Damned, The Police, The Ramones, Elvis Costello, Peter Gabriel and Patti Smith, along with already legendary artists such as Pink Floyd, Genesis, Talking Heads and Thin Lizzy.

This first ever showing of the "The Wild, The Beautiful, & The Damned!" collection higlights a plethora of Punk, Prog and Rock artists of the time and place and will be exhibited one night only - November 30th, 2007 - at the Chicago Art Department, 1837 S. Halsted St.
