Shepard Fairey and Dennis Morris pay homage to the legendary Sid Vicious in this art show harkening back to 1977. Vicious’ chaotic life was cut short at age 21, when he died of an overdose. An object of idolization ever since, this show - featuring paintings, photos, and prints inspired by Vicious, not to mention the life-size replica of a hotel room Sid trashed in 1977 while intoxicated - may be the ultimate tribute to the Sex Pistols’ bassist. You won’t want to miss the opening night, when a punk-rock all-star band, consisting of Sex Pistol Steve Jones, Billy Idol, Blondie drummer Clem Burke, and Bow Wow Wow bassist Leigh Gorman, play a one-night-only set of 1977-era punk rock classics.
