About Rock On! Marin County’s Psychedelic Rock Scene in the 60s
The Marin Museum of Contemporary Art to Host Rock On! Marin County’s Psychedelic Rock Scene in the 60s: Stories, Photos, and Art + Live Q&A on Wednesday, September 30 at 8PM ET
Paul Liberatore, award-winning music journalist, legendary rock photographer Jay Blakesberg, Dave Getz of Big Brother and the Holding Company, and musician and producer Jonathan Korty (who all happen to be great friends) will provide stories, photos, and artwork from the explosion of psychedelic rock music in Marin County, CA starting in 1966, the year before San Francisco would get on the map as the world’s hippie capital.
Highlights from the discussion will include the in-person scoop from Dave Getz on Janis Joplin — her pain, her joy, and how they developed the style of raw psychedelic blues-rock that created a sensation in 1968. Jay Blakesberg will tell the amazing story about his first mind-blowing trip to California at age 18, traveling from New Jersey on a Greyhound bus, to photograph the Grateful Dead at their New Year’s show in Oakland in 1979, and much, much more!
