Long after Television, Richard Lloyd carries the torch at PJ's Lager House

Posted By on Wed, Aug 15, 2018 at 9:08 AM

A gaggle of teenage friends-turned-runaway poets in 1970s New York resulted in the formation of Television — an art-punk band that developed a cult following spanning nearly 45 years.

Guitarist Richard Lloyd joined the group ahead of their seminal debut release Marquee Moon in 1977 and he, along with Tom Verlaine, had a hand in establishing the now-famous punk crowd of CBGB after pushing Television as the storied club’s house band. While CBGB's is now defunct, what has survived Television’s tortured legacy is the success of the members’ many side projects — and Lloyd’s never-say-die punk spirit.

Richard Lloyd will perform at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 16 at PJ's Lager House; 1254 Michigan Ave., Detroit; 313-961-4668; facebook.com/lagerhouse; Tickets are $20.
