It also includes an uncommon original poster and ticket to the Punk Magazine Awards in 1978. Rarely seen, this promotional piece for the First Annual Punk Magazine Awards Ceremony promoted the ill-fated event on October 13, 1978 at New York's Club Hollywood. The event was dramatically altered by the violent murder of Nancy Spungen by British punk rocker Sid Vicious the night before. Despite the tragedy, the event proceeded with Lou Reed, The Ramones, Debbie Harry, Harvey Keitel, Malcolm McLaren and other notable attendees, culminating in the inaugural party at the famed Mudd Club. The Super Rare 1979 Punk Magazine Calendar is also included, along with the Spanish issue and an uncommon 1981 double-sided D.O.A. Handbill, advertising the April 10, 1981 premiere screening of the punk film at the Waverly Theatre in NYC. Punk Magazine was a fanzine started by cartoonist John Holmstrom and Legs McNeil in 1976 that showcased the New York punk rock scene. Punk arrived as The Velvet Underground, MC5, and Iggy & The Stooges had broken up, but when The Ramones, The Dictators, and Television were prominent on the scene. After fifteen issues, the initial publication came to an end in 1979.
