The Art and Allure of Vinyl Records at The Oakland Museum of California on July 18 with Winston Smith

Talk, Play, and Sip: The Art and Allure of the Record Album with Boing Boing and Noise Pop

Friday, July 18, 2014, 7–8:30 pm

Artist Winston Smith, who has designed many Moonalice posters will be on a panel discussing the art and allure of vinyl records at the Oakland Museum of California on July 18.

Decades after records were declared dead media by the mainstream, the vinyl revival has broken through to popular consciousness. But for many musicians, visual artists, designers, and fans, vinyl’s visceral power has never disappeared. In this energetic panel discussion, presented in collaboration with Boing Boing and Noise Pop, Boing Boing editor David Pescovitz and a panel of legends from the worlds of art, design, and music will discuss why we still yearn to put the needle on the record.

Guests include:
Nick Harmer, bassist, Death Cab for Cutie
Winston Smith, legendary punk artist for Dead Kennedys, Green Day, and Alternative Tentacles
Lawrence Azerrad, designer of iconic albums by Wilco, Miles Davis, and the Beach Boys

Enjoy mixed drinks and other beverages during the night at a special bar located in the Vinyl exhibition during Friday Nights @ OMCA. Beverages will be for sale in the gallery from 5 to 9 pm.

Talk and Play, a program series in Vinyl: The Sound and Culture of Records, features guest participants from DJs to music journalists, record collectors to experimental musicians. Talk, Play, and Sip stirs up the social atmosphere with a bar located in the Gallery during select Friday Nights @ OMCA. With something different every week, you might find yourself swapping albums with collectors, learning from an expert about the mechanics of pressing an album, or listening to a specially curated music set.

Included with Museum admission. During Friday Nights @ OMCA, from 5 to 9 pm, admission is half-price for adults, free for ages 18 and under. Admission for Members is always free. Seating for this event is limited, and available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Moonalice poster by David Singer

According to Moonalice legend, at our gig here last month I wore a Tim Lincecum jersey. Since that day Timmy has thrown a no hitter and won three games. Unfortunately, the rest of the team went oh-for-the-month. The Giants thanked me for helping Timmy, but requested that I go back to wearing vests. I thought my work was done … then I saw this evening’s poster by David Singer. It depicts Mary Poppins Moonalice, nanny goddess of Bay Bridge series. Mary P wants everyone to know she is very pleased to have the As in first place and the Giants only a half game back. She commends the As for putting on a good show for the fans in winning the past two games in Oakland, but she has put the As on notice. It’s time to let the Giants win a couple at AT&T. Violators of this rule will be sent to bed without dessert and grounded until after the All Star game …

Moonalice poster by Alexandra Fischer

According to Moonalice legend, Delancey Street is like first rays of morning sunlight … a chance to begin again. The hard part about beginning again is that the pace is slow. Things don’t appear to change much at first. Today’s poster by Alexandra Fischer reminds us that when it comes to moving slowly, looks can be deceiving. Elephants don’t run. They are not physically able to do it. All they can do is walk. But they can walk 50 miles or more in a day without any trouble. Even the babies. You don’t have to do that for many days before you are a long way from where you started. That is the opportunity available to everyone of us in this room. We in Moonalice are here to cheer you on.
