The Museum of Performance and Design opens a major exhibition today tracing the vibrant Bay Area rock and roll scene, circa 1969-1973.

From the MSD Web site:

Co-curators Melissa Leventon and Alec Palao evoke this rich era using a wealth of rarely seen footage, posters, images, and costume from private and other public collections and the artists themselves.  Completing the picture is rarely heard audio, some of it drawn from the archive of vintage KSAN recordings recently added to MPD’s permanent collection.

The exhibition runs from September 25, 2009-August 2010, so there should be  ample opportunity for a trip to San Francisco.  Have you seen the stars tonight?
