From rock to punk to a little-remembered electro phase, The Stone Pony has been an integral part of music history for decades. New Jersey-based Times reporter Nick Corasaniti, author of the venue’s oral history, dug deep into the Pony’s past, present and future with special guests, including Jack Roig, Stone Pony founder; Eileen Chapman, former manager of the Pony, Springsteen Archives director and current city councilwoman; Vini Lopez, Springsteen’s first drummer; and Caroline O’Toole, current manager of the Pony. An acoustic performance by Southside Johnny kept the house humming. For information about our wide range of subscriber events, visit timesevents.nytimes.com.
