New York City’s bohemian legacy is strong but can seem to travelers like ancient history. This tour is a masterclass in the history of the Greenwich Village and East Village punk scenes of the 1960s and ‘70s, visiting the fateful places where musicians—from the Velvet Underground to Blondie—lived, rehearsed, and performed. The tour also pays special attention to New York City punk’s LGBTQ roots and the East Village’s broader history.
  • See how punk rock developed in New York City in the 1960s and ‘70s
  • Visit the locations of legendary venues like CBGB, Electric Circus, and Club 82
  • Stop at the old homes of the Ramones, Talking Heads, and other bands
  • Learn about the historical ties between the East Village and the local LGBTQ community
