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.

Memories & Dreams Magazine (volume 36 number 3)

The latest issue of Memories & Dreams Magazine (volume 36 number 3), the official magazine of the Hall of Fame, features a great article about the poster and provides some back story to this piece.
