The Dead Boys emerged from Cleveland in the late 1970s and would go on to achieve national (and even international) acclaim before quickly imploding.

Photographer Dave Treat captured the band during that time period. Dead Boys 1977: The Lost Photographs of Dave Treat, a book edited and designed by locally based writer and graphic designer Ron Kretsch, chronicles the group's early days.

In conjunction with the Dead Boys 40th anniversary concert that takes place on Friday, June 29, at the Beachland Ballroom, Space:ROCK Gallery will host a show featuring even more of Treat’s Dead Boys photos. Treat has added about 20 never-before-seen hand-printed images for this exhibit.

The now-famous alley shot that served as the inspiration for Glenn Brown’s image on the cover of the band’s LP Young, Loud and Snotty will be part of the exhibit as will rare concert photos from The Dead Boys’ 1977 Cleveland Agora show with the Dictators.

An opening takes place from 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday, June 29, and the exhibit will run during the Waterloo Arts Festival on June 30. It will stay up through the Beachland Flea Market on Saturday, July 21.
