Vernissage Euro-Punk Exhibition @ Cité de la Musique, Paris Oct 14 2013

Vernissage Euro-Punk Exhibition @ Cité de la Musique, Paris Oct 14 2013 6pm
 Punk  Exhibition

"Vernissage" for the Euro-Punk exhibition that is taking place @ Cité de la Musique in Paris, lots of people who are quietly queuing to get in.
Lots of papers: Posters, flyers... some art-work, covers + albums & singles
Some vintage clothes from Vivienne Westwood.
The Sex Pistols & The Clash have a bit more than some others bands but they were the leaders of this movement so...
You can make your own Punk Badge, there is a machine
You can even play with instruments in a soundproof room under the supervision of a musician, that is very cool, I've tried the drums even though I have'nt touch to a drum kit for the last 20 years... that was fun.
You can view old footage of different concerts ( Joy Division, Slits, Clash, Siouxsie, Pistols...)
You can listen to a "Punk Jukebox" in the basement and in the room next-door , they're playing a German Documentary about Punk, that was taped at the time with some unknown bands but also with The Clash, Wayne County, The Jam...and a few others that is very interesting (live footage and interviews, funny one with The Stranglers)
  Overall good exhibition
