The Sixties at Fifty exhibits is now at the Museum of the San Ramon Valley. The Sixties were an exciting, awful, inspiring innovative but always memorable time. Just as the Sixties came to close this exhibit will as well on June 2 so don’t delay.
No exhibit on the Sixties would be complete without a presentation on the music of this period. On May 30 at 7:00 pm at the Veterans Hall in Danville rock historian and author Richie Unterberger will present rare vintage film clips of the 1960s. This event will feature rock greats like the Beatles, Jefferson Airplane, and Janis Joplin in his 90-minute program. He’ll also show clips of performers based in Contra Costa County at the time, such as Creedence Clearwater Revival, and talk about the region’s venues, connections to Bay Area rock stars like the Grateful Dead, and artists who toured here during this era.
The Sixties movie series will continue with the following:
June 7 Patch of Blue at Veterans Hall Danville
