Television, punk rock in the 1970s, New York City

Founded in 1973 by Tom Verlaine, Billy Ficca, Richard Hell and Richard Lloyd, experimental punk group Television would get its start within New York City's underground scene where the band would earn rank and a cult following of its own with regular appearances at downtown staples such as CBGB and Max's Kansas City. Throughout the decade ahead, the critical and commercial acclaim to follow breakout hits and studio albums like "Little Johnny Jewel" and Marquee Moon would catapult the punk pioneers to mainstream success in a short but legendary rise. Though Television would disband shortly after the 1978 release of their second and final studio album, Adventure, the group's legacy remains as celebrated as the now-iconic music halls where they got their historic start over four decades ago.
