Last night

we rented "Shine A Light", the Rolling Stones film by Martin Scorsese. It was excellent. "Into The Wild" is still hard to even think about. I guess I've known so many who could have been that guy, including my brothers. Heck, it could have been me. The film "Salvador" which came out some years ago is an important movie and very watchable.

based on a true story

and the book by Jon Krakauer the movie "Into The Wild" is quite a trip. Liked it as much as the book. So if you haven't seen it and are looking for a DVD to see, check it out and get the Jiffy Pop poppin.

Background:

What's The "Trips Fest"?
from Charles Perry's
A History of the Haight-Ashbury

On new Year's Eve 1965, Stewart Brand and some associates staged a parade down Montgomery Street, the heart of San Francisco's financial district.

The real reason for the parade was to get a little press attention for an event three weeks in the future, a sort of circus that would gather together the Acid Test, the Open Theater, Tape Music Center activities, rock bands, light shows and everything else the organizers could think of. Brand and his friends were going to use Longshoremen's Hall and have Bill Graham coordinate it. The name was straightforward: the Trips Festival.

The Trips Festival was the seminal event that was the passing of the baton from the beatnicks to the hippies. It also was the coming out party for Bill Graham, the father of modern concert promotions as we know them. Before graham's experiment at the Trips festival, the idea of lights, multi-media and other "mood inducing" production elements in live music was pretty much unheard of.

Many aspects of concert promotion and pop culture that we now take for granted were breakthroughs at the Trips.Festival. Many acts whom we now regard as part of Rock & Roll royalty were also discovered at The Trips Festival; acts like Jefferson Air-Plane (today known as star-ship) and The Grateful Dead.

In Fact, one of Pacifica's own, Steve Brown, worked for the Grateful Dead and contributed in the making of the film. Steve will be on-hand Saturday to share rare footage and stories with us. 

The film's creator will also be on hand to discuss this amazing piece of local and international history. Please join us this Saturday at 7:30pm at the Sanchez concert hall. Advance tickets can be found at PCT: 355-8000
