Glen E. Friedman presents and signs Glen E. Friedman: My Rules

Book Soup

8818 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90069

7:00pm

The definitive monograph of Glen E. Friedman, a pioneer of skate, punk, and hip-hop photography, including much never-before-published work. Glen E. Friedman is best known for his work capturing and promoting rebellion in his portraits of artists such as Fugazi, Black Flag, Ice-T, Dead Kennedys, Minor Threat, The Misfits, Bad Brains, Beastie Boys, Run-D.M.C., and Public Enemy, as well as classic skateboarding originators such as Tony Alva, Jay Adams, Alan "Ollie" Gelfand, Duane Peters, and Stacy Peralta, and a very young Tony Hawk. Designed in association with celebrated street and graphic artist Shepard Fairey, this monograph captures the most important and influential underground heroes of skateboarding, punk, and hip-hop cultures. My Rules is an unprecedented window into the three most significant countercultures of the last quarter of the twentieth century, and Friedman's photographs define those important movements that he helped shape. A remarkable chronicle and a primer about the origins of radical street cultures, My Rules is also a statement of artistic inspiration for those influenced by these countercultures.

REEL TO REEL: HARRY DEAN STANTON: PARTLY FICTION

GRAMMY Museum

800 W. Olympic Blvd, 800 W. Olympic Blvd, 0

7:30pm

No doubt, you’ve seen Harry Dean Stanton in at least one of his 250 films. But have you heard him sing? The many facets of Harry Dean Stanton are explored in Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction, a critically acclaimed documentary directed by Sophie Huber that has been screened at more than 50 festivals, both internationally and in the U.S. (including its stateside premiere at SXSW in 2013). A visually and musically striking documentary tribute to the iconic actor and under-appreciated singer, the film documents Stanton in his intimate moments and features film clips, as well as performing his own heartbreaking renditions of country and folk songs. Additionally, the film explores Stanton’s enigmatic outlook on his life, his unexploited talents as a musician, and includes scenes with David Lynch, Wim Wenders, Sam Shepard, Deborah Harry, Kris Kristofferson among others. After the screening, Scott Goldman, Vice President of The GRAMMY Museum and MusiCares, will moderate a panel discussion/jam session with Harry Dean Stanton, Jamie James (guitar), Don Was (bass) and Director Sophie Huber. In June, Omnivore Recordings released the original soundtrack on CD, LP, and Digital. They are currently available everywhere fine music can be purchased.
