Good Morning, Ungovernables! We’ve got something for everybody today from The Mermaid Lounge, highlighted by the Monterey International Pop Festival!
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Foo Fighters
The Foos started as Dave Grohl’s one-man project after the death of Kurt Cobain and the dissolution of Nirvana. The rest, as they say, is legend.
3:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Marvin Gaye NEW!
Singer. Songwriter. Producer. Marvin Gaye helped shape the Motown sound, earning himself a string of hits along with the title, The Prince of Motown. Today, we give him his due.
7:00 p.m. The Best of The Summer of Love! The Monterey International Pop Festival NEW!
Before Woodstock in 1969, there was the Monterey International Pop Festival held at the Monterey County Fairgrounds in California from June 16-18, 1967. The Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Who, Johnny Rivers, Simon & Garfunkel, The Grateful Dead, The Mamas & The Papas and many others all graced the stage. It also marked the introduction of Otis Redding to the world.
Yeah, baby. This is a great music day to figure out what we’re all about. Join us. We’re free. Always. We’re about as outside the system as you can get. We’re perfect for you.
