Co będziecie robić

In this tour through Greenwich Village and the East Village, we'll see how punk rock developed — from forebears like the Velvet Underground, the New York Dolls, Jobriath and Suicide, to it's commercial peak in the late 70's with Patti Smith, the Ramones, Television, Talking Heads, and Blondie. Special attention is paid to punk's deep but often-overlooked roots in the city's LGBTQ+ community. We'll also discuss the larger history of the East Village, how the neighborhood impacted the music that came out of it, and how that music in turn transformed the neighborhood for decades to come.

Destinations include:
- Where the Velvet Underground first met Andy Warhol and Nico
- Where classic album cover photos of the Ramones, the New York Dolls, and the Velvet Underground were taken
- The bar where the New York Dolls formed
- The record store where Patti Smith first met her bandmate Lenny Kaye
- Where the word "punk" was first applied to this music (it's not where you think)
- Pre-fame homes of members of the Ramones, Talking Heads, and Suicide
- The locations of legendary venues, including CBGB, the Mercer Arts Center, the Dom/Electric Circus, the Bottom Line, Cafe Bizarre, and Club 82
Other things to note
I highly suggest going to the bathroom before the tour! There's a public restroom in Washington Square Park.

Jesse is so incredibly knowledgeable. We’ve lived in NY for five years and didn’t know a quarter of what he had to say, our jaws kept dropping every ten minutes. Only suggestion is to maybe get a voice amplifier? Noisy NY and passerby made it hard to hear at times. Thank you Jesse, I’m ready to be a snob to my friends who visit the city.

I don’t know where to start. This experience blew me away. Literally. It was probably my best experience in NYC...! Jesse made us travel through decades of rock and punk music, shared untold stories and showed unknown places of birth and history of rock music in nyc. It felt like a movie with us the main characters, In the end I could almost see Bowie going out of one of the places Jesse was talking about ... please do not hesitate to go On this tour. It’s magic.

I was really surprised by the tour, Jesse has a huge knowledge on the topic, I felt part of the punk history by standing in places and walking arround where many of our favorite bands lived, and this added to Jesse histories and pictures I could really feel the vibe that was happening that time. It was easy to understand what he was saying, even for me from Brazil, since Jesse speaks clearly and calmly through the whole tour. I really recommend this tour!!
