Chico Rocks Poster by Frank Alan Bella & Frank Wiedemann
Chico’s Got Soul Presents: Chico Rocks! featuring posters and flyers from the Chico Music Scene, San Francisco and beyond in the last 20 years. Well known Chico rock poster artists Frank Alan Bella (Bill Graham Presents, Robby Krieger of The Doors, TRPS) and Frank Wiedemann (The Fillmore, The Warfield) will have many of their great posters on display, and for sale. A limited poster designed by both of them will be available with all proceeds going to the Pageant Theatre.
This historic Chico theater is currently going through rough times trying to keep its doors open. A major hurdle is the impending retirement of 35 mm film, which requires purchase of a digital projector that can run about $50,000. Also appearing is Chico poster artist and promoter, Jonas Beeler. DJ Spenny/Spencer Djspenny Rouse will be spinning from 6-8pm and a live band tribute to the Velvet Underground from 8-10pm. Hors d’Oeuvres will be served. Beer and wine will also be available. Please come out and support your local artists and musicians. Asking a $5 donation for the DJ/band/venue for helping to put on this amazing event. Chico Rocks!

Our big event of the year, the TRPS Festival of Rock Posters, is set to go on Saturday October 19th. We’ll be back at the Hall of Flowers in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco for the biggest poster event of its kind anywhere, and this is shaping up to be another great show with a stellar lineup of poster artists and dealers.
For a long time we’ve discussed the idea of revamping our show admission protocols to reward current TRPS members and encourage more people to join. This year we’re making it happen, and here’s how it’s going to work.
10:00 – 11:00 Admission is $20 for non-TRPS members. Admission for members is $5 as usual, and your membership needs to be current. Please bring your card to show at the door. If your membership is expired or you’re a nonmember, you pay the full admission price at the door and we refund you the $15 difference by renewing or joining at the TRPS table. We encourage you to make sure your membership is current before the show to avoid the hassle. It’s easier than ever to join or renew on our website www.trps.org. We’ve even got two new TRPS t-shirt designs to offer for the first time (by Alex Fischer and Art Chantry), and you can pick one as a membership premium.
11:00 – 3:00 Admission is $10 for non-TRPS members, and $5 for members. Just like always.
3:00 – 6:00 Admission is FREE to all. If being part of the early rush isn’t important to you, heck just come later when things have settled down a bit and get in for nothing. Hey, can’t beat that. Bring your friends and family!
The Hall of Flowers (Old County Fair Building) is just inside Golden Gate Park at the corner of Ninth and Lincoln in SF. Show hours are 10:00 am until 6:00 pm. Mark down Saturday October 19th, 2013 on your calendar. For any poster collector or fan, this is the one show you don’t want to miss.
