Herbert Huncke Centennial Panel Discussion presented by the Beat Museum and Unrequited Records. Mister WA Video Production. Friday January 16th, 2015, San Francisco.
Herbert Huncke has long been a marginal figure among marginal figures. A Times Square hustler whose writings shone a naked bulb upon the gritty urban underworld, peopled with dispossessed characters scraping an existence from the fringes of society, Huncke not only inspired the Beat Generation—he gave it a name.
This January would have been Huncke’s 100th birthday.
