October 15, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Howl! Happening celebrates the release of the legendary East Village duo Tish and Snooky Bellomo’s new book Manic Panic Living in Color. Reveal your inner Aurora Borealis with the audacious beauty-and-lifestyle handbook from punk rock pioneers and founders of the iconic hair color and make-up brand.
With a colorful foreword by RuPaul—a customer/fan/friend and dye-hard for decades—Manic Panic Living in Color is both the rollicking origin story of the sister’s punk rock roots combined with a fearless guide to finding your color in the rainbow.
Starting their performing career as backup vocalists for Blondie from 1974 to 1975, they formed their own punk band, The Sic Fucks. They opened and operated the original Manic Panic boutique in the East Village from 1977 until its closure in 1999. Both sisters continue to play music as members of supergroup Blue Coupe alongside original members of Blue Oyster Cult and original Alice Cooper bassist Dennis Dunaway
With hundreds of inspiring photographs, Tish and Snooky continue to inspire a unique sense of style whether its Red Passion, Bad Boy Blue, Electric Banana—or all three!
