Music // Wednesday, February 26, 2014
We have shown you the posters, we have introduced (or re-introduced) you to the artists and photographers behind the scenes, but today we want to show you some of the music we have been listening to in the office as we put the March 2014 issue together. From Jefferson Airplane to Sly and the Family Stone, Hendrix to Mayall, Quicksilver Messenger Service to Janis Joplin, it was a fun few months of getting back into a great era of experimentation, music, art, and culture.

Coinciding with our special feature in our March 2014 issue on the rock poster art scene in San Francisco in the 1960s, we are looking at the portfolios of the "Big 5" who helped define the era. Of all the famous 1960s poster artists, especially living and working in San Francisco during that time period, Rick Griffin is widely considered to be the most influential. Part psychedelic, part sexual revolution, part comics, part surf bohemia, Griffin embodies California's visual history.

Photos of the festivities after the jump. Stop by Mollusk (online or in SF and Venice) to grab Rick Griffin threads.
