Mark Newman (Blondie's sound engineer) and Brenda Hutchison invite blondie.net's visitors and supporters to participate in the Mick Rock exhibition and book signing opening reception on March 19. They write:

Our dear friends Le and Thomas, who own the cool local clothing store FactoryPeople, have put together the most awesome event to benefit me and my (never-ending) cancer medical bills and the SIMS Foundation, a mental health resource service for the Austin Music community.

It is this Saturday, March 19, in Austin, TX, at Factory People on S. Congress Ave. from 2 - 4 pm. Legendary British rock photographer Mick Rock (Iggy, Ziggy/Bowie, Jagger, Blondie, Warhol, Lou Reed, Queen...) will be there signing his newest book (of history making '70s rock photos) and telling the amazing behind the scenes stories about his famous rock'n'roll images, photo shoots, and the infamous parties....

Mick, author of the recently released book of his Blondie photographs Picture This - Debbie Harry and Blondie, has also generously offered to donate the exhibitions proceeds from sales of signed limited edition posters (as shown on the invitation.) [FactoryPeople also have an online Mick Rock article with more information.]

As well, Factory People is launching a silent Ebay auction (starting March 19) that will include "one of a kind" rock'n'roll memorabilia generously donated by dear friends BLONDIE and THE BLACK CROWES, among others. Auction items will be on display at the party and through the end of March at Factory People.

Many 'celeb' guests are scheduled to attend and maybe even DJ at the party, so be sure not to miss it!

Please click on the following invitation link for more info.... It promises to be the social event of the week, maybe even the year!

Love, Brenda Hutchison & Mark Newman
