Joel Selvin: Altamont

When: Mon., Aug. 22, 6 p.m. 2016

Celebrated rock and roll journalist Joel Selvin (co-author of the NY Times #1 bestseller, RED, with Sammy Hagar) tells the definitive story of the Rolling Stones' infamous 1969 Altamont Speedway concert near San Francisco...a disastrous and historic musical event that, for many, marked the end of the idealistic 1960's. "The distorted twin of Woodstock," referred to in many rock and roll anthems, headlined such famed musical groups as: Santana; Jefferson Airplane; Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young; The Rolling Stones; and The Grateful Dead. A night of live music, memories, concert footage, and classic rock and roll! Q&A and book signing.
