The 2017 Festival of Rock Posters is just about a week away, so that means it’s probably way too late to renew your TRPS membership before the show, right?

Wrong! You can renew your membership right now at TRPS.org. When you get to the show, we’ll have your name at the door so that you only have to pay the member entrance fee of $5 (instead of $20 from 10-11, and $10 from 11-3). And your new membership card, membership packet, and T-shirt will be waiting for you at the TRPS table.

So renew your membership now, and we’ll see you at the show!


Fire Dance, 2017

We know a post on a website does nothing, but our hearts go out to all those who have been affected by the fires in Sonoma, Napa, Lake, and Mendocino counties. Here’s hoping for cooler temperatures, calmer conditions, and safety for all.


Soundtrack to the 60s: The Berkeley Music Scene

On Sunday, October 8, the Berkeley Historical Society opens a new exhibition of artifacts and ephemera titled “Soundtrack to the 60s: The Berkeley Music Scene.” Pulled largely from the collection of Country Joe McDonald, the show, which runs through April 1, 2018, focuses on Berkeley’s contributions to the Bay Area music scene—from clubs like Jabberwock and labels like Fantasy to such bands as Country Joe and the Fish, Joy of Cooking, and Creedence Clearwater Revival. In particular, the exhibition looks at the impact of the protest movement on Berkeley musicians and their music.

The opening reception on October 8, from 2-5pm, will feature live musical performances by Country Joe McDonald, members of Joy of Cooking, Oona Garthwaite, and surprise guests. Seating for this free event is limited, so register now at Eventbrite.

As in years past, doors open at 10:00 am and the show runs until 6:00 pm. Here’s how it works:

Admission Info
* 10:00 – 11:00 Admission during the first hour is $20 for non-TRPS members. Admission for TRPS members is $5, but your membership needs to be current. Please bring your card to show at the door. If your membership is expired, or if for some incomprehensible reason you are not yet a member, it’s easier than ever to renew or join at trps.org. And if you cannot renew online in advance, you can get a refund of $15 off the cost of the $30 membership when you renew or join at the show.
* 11:00 – 3:00 Admission is $10 for non-TRPS members and $5 for TRPS members.
* 3:00 – 6:00 Admission is FREE to all.

Membership Premiums
When you join TRPS, you have a range of membership premiums to choose from, including rock-art T-shirts by Emek, Gregg Gordon, David Singer, and other rock-poster artists.

Where Is It Again?
The Hall of Flowers (aka, the Old County Fair Building) is just inside Golden Gate Park, near the corner of Ninth and Lincoln. If you need directions, check out the map on our Facebook page.

See you there!
