Lawrence Ferlinghetti just turned 100. He is a beacon. He built something with City Lights that I want to use as an example for Rocks in Your Head. He was able to publish so many authors, so many writers…the big cultural heroes, but also lesser known poets and writers, activists, journalists, artists.
He provided a store and a publishing company, and he helped create a whole community.
We want to build something like city lights , something like Motown, in San Francisco, in 2019.
A fully operating music building. A record label, a store, a festival, a production studio, a publishing arm, a booking arm, a publicity arm, manufacturing (a vinyl press), and ultimately a distribution platform.
We’ve already begun the label and the festival! It’s coming together…
