Pacific Grove’s Good Old Days Fes­ti­val
April 6, 2014 Pacific Grove, CA
Moon­al­ice poster by Den­nis Larkins

Accord­ing to Moon­al­ice leg­end, the Good Old Days fes­ti­val is hap­pen­ing right here on the streets of Pacific Grove. This loca­tion is filled with his­tor­i­cal sig­nif­i­cance. For exam­ple, that build­ing right there was once a com­mune filled with hip­pies just like us, only more so. But did you know that about the first fes­ti­val on this site? It occurred back in the dark ages — the early 60s — when an ear­lier ver­sion of our tribe met up with mem­bers of the Rum­sen branch of the Ohlone tribe to cel­e­brate the depar­ture of those pesky monarch but­ter­flies. As today’s poster by Den­nis Larkins shows, our guys showed up in a sta­tion wagon with a camper full of weed, admin­is­tered by Big Steve and Pokey. The Rum­sens brought their gui­tars and rocked the joint. They taught us every­thing we know!!!

I call my lat­est match­ing pair of paint­ings “Moon­al­ice Tours Play­sets”. The con­cept comes from what used to be avail­able to kids in the 1950’s from Wards and Sears cat­a­logues (“wish books”) in their toy sec­tions. Each “Play­set” includes a Tour­ing Vehi­cle and Tour Trailer com­plete with “high tech” com­mu­ni­ca­tion equip­ment (nat­u­rally!) for broad­cast­ing the shows. The sets are themed with char­ac­ters and props includ­ing the Moon­al­ice Band as well as Big Steve and Pokey in the trailer! The theme of the poster (and Play­set) for the first show on April 5 at the Pacific Grove’s Good Old Days Fes­ti­val is “Land of the Dinosaurs” and for the sec­ond show on April 6 it’s “Cow­boys and Indi­ans”! Hope­fully, peo­ple will attend both shows and col­lect the whole set! — Den­nis Larkins

Moon­al­ice poster by Den­nis Larkins

Accord­ing to Moon­al­ice leg­end, these are the Good Old Days. As depicted in the first poster of Den­nis Larkins’ dip­tych, the Good Old Days are filled with happy mem­o­ries of eat­ing dirt, play­ing with the mer­cury from bro­ken ther­mome­ters, and rid­ing bikes with­out a hel­met. Those were the days when plas­tic dinosaurs were no threat to Match­box cars and when bands actu­ally played good music. Here in Pacific Grove, the good old days are back and so are we. Thank you … for a real good time.
