On Thursday, April 30, 2009, Altamont presented the opening reception for famed street photographer and Altamont brand contributor Boogie’s latest exhibition entitled The Best of Times.

A diverse crowd of over 400 artists, art aficionados, skaters, models, drug dealers, musicians, hang-arounds and a veritable who’s who of the OG downtown New York hardcore scene came out to view a mix of over 700 of the Serbian-born, Brooklyn-dwelling photographer’s new and older work presented in a ‘zine style format throughout the Altamont showroom's basement gallery.

A live performance by the legendary L.E.S. hardcore band Murphy’s Law hurled the typical SoHo art show theme out the window and whipped the eclectic crowd into a smiling, moshing frenzy as over 1200 cans of Pabst Blue Ribbon were crushed in what event attendee Dante Ross called, “The best shit to hit New York in a while.” The Best of Times, indeed!
