Guest Artist: Bob Masse
Bob Masse is from Canada’s west coast and has been producing concert posters since the 1960s. While attending art school in Vancouver, British Columbia, he began his career doing posters for the folk acts that came through town, in exchange for free drinks, tickets, and the opportunity to meet the musicians. As folk became folk-rock, and Vancouver was visited by such bands as the Grateful Dead, The Doors, the Jefferson Airplane and Steve Miller, Bob continued to produce memorable concert posters for these bands, and helped pioneer the emerging psychedelic art genre. Bob will be exhibiting, signing and selling his work.
The Kops History of Recorded Music
A stall featuring physical artifacts from the last 100 years. A once-in-a-lifetime chance to see the Kops archives. Please browse at the leisurely speed the artifacts deserve.
The Kids’ Station
A creative table for young vinyl lovers. No one wants sticky fingers over their treasured Rolling Stones 10″ rare picture disc, but we all want our kids to learn the wonders of the vinyl form. Give them a valuable chance to touch, draw, bend, dribble on, and – in all likelihood – render unplayable someone else’s records.
Vinyl Storage and Maintenance
Learn how to care for and preserve your records. Take your learning home and – along with your record collection – pass down to your grandchildren. There won’t always be more records! Keep them fresh for future generations!
