Seasonal Special Happenings

Blast from the Past

When: Fri., May 1 2015

From the late 1970s until 2005, Cleveland photographer Kevin D. Carmont, who had been in a band with Anton Fier (Golden Palominos) and Mike Terrell (Wild Giraffes) photographed local acts such as Styrenes, Pere Ubu, Foreign Bodies, Jim Jones, Dave E. with the Cool Marriage Counselors (pictured), Golden Palominos, the Wild Giraffes and Wally Bryson. His first “published” image was of Dave E. (best known as a member of the Electric Eels) in an issue of CLE magazine. Kevin D. Carmont: Listen to these Pictures, a new exhibit of his work, includes a selection of his work, including shots from the July 4 beach party at the Hanna mansion in Bratenahl where the Cramps and Pere Ubu played for about 100 guests (including Plain Dealer rock writer Jane Scott). The exhibit also includes photos of Talking Heads playing at Finney Chapel and Bernie and the Invisibles performing at the old Coach House. The exhibit's opening reception takes place today from 6 to 10 p.m. (Niesel)
