The crowd went wild when Blondie took the stage and even WILDER when Debbie Harry took off her skirt and revealed her “Hey Ho, Let’s Go!” Ramones shorts!

And if they went wild for Blondie, they went absolutely ballistic for Chuck D, Flavor Flav, Professor Griff and the rest of Public Enemy, who urged everyone to “Fight The Power!”

Their keynote speaker: “highly successful and non–conventional entrepreneur Snooky Bellomo [as she was billed by the club] founder and president of Manic Panic® cosmetics and accessories.”

Since the original MANIC PANIC® store has its humble beginnings in the Lower East Side, Tish and Snooky have a special affection for this organization. They themselves started their business when they were very young girls and are always happy to share their story and give advice to young women today.

The Lower Eastside Girls Club is a community non–profit devoted to providing a place where girls and young women aged 8 to 21 can grow, learn, have fun and gain confidence in themselves and their ability to make a difference in the world.
