Tonight, please join Boing Boing and Noise Pop at the Oakland Museum of California with Death Cab for Cutie bassist Nick Harmer, Wilco designer Lawrence Azerrad, and Dead Kennedys / Alternative Tentacles artist Winston Smith to explore the art and allure of vinyl records!
We'll also be giving away a limited number of signed prints of Lawrence Azerrad's event poster seen here!
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 an energetic roundtable discussion on Friday, July 18, 2014 at the Oakland Museum of California, 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.
