IGGY POP: The Godfather of Punk Exhibit On Now In Toronto

#IggyPop #punkrock #musichistory #godfatherofpunk #thestooges

For one night only, the Liss Gallery in Toronto will have a special exhibit celebrating Iggy Pop. Coined as the “Godfather of Punk”, Iggy Pop remains one of the most iconic and notorious punk rockers in history. Known for his onstage antics, generation defining music and total disregard for the rules, Iggy Pop is just as much a pop culture icon as he is musician.

In celebration of his new album, Free out this Friday, the intimate photo exhibit follows the musician throughout the years, showing both iconic images of the star, as well as, lesser known earlier photos from his crucial beginnings. After a waltz through the gallery, take time to pre-order Iggy’s new book; ‘Til Wrong Feels Right. The new book, to be released in celebration of the 50th anniversary of The Stooges debut album, will take a look back at Iggy’s lyrics over the years. This deep dive into the world of Iggy Pop is a must for any fan.

During a special preview of the exhibit Wednesday night, host Alan Cross, along with a panel of experts shared various stories and accolades about the notorious frontman. From the CBC denying him to perform on air, to almost causing Much Music to lose their broadcasting licence, the man has certainly left his mark in Canada. Panelists also included author Nick Smash, entertainment lawyer David Steinberg and Ivar Hamilton from Universal Music Canada.

“The Godfather of Punk Through The Years” will run for one night only tonight (Sept. 5th 2019) from 6-8 pm at the Liss Gallery Toronto, 112 Cumberland Street, M5R 1A6, 416-787-9872.
