Hear My Train a coming – Hendrix hits London at EMP Museum, Seattle

EMP Museum, Seattle Washington or Experience Music Project is dedicated to the ideas & risk taking that fuel contemporary popular culture.

New Exhibition : Hear my train a coming – Jimi Hendrix hits London

From the flamboyant fashions on the street to the sounds that ushered in a new electric era in rock, Hear My Train a Comin’: Hendrix Hits London captures the musician’s impact on England’s most happening city during the swinging sixties. Get experienced with artifacts, instruments, and personal mementos from one of Seattle’s favorite sons.

Hendrix’s show at the Saville Theatre in Westminster would be his last before leaving England to perform at the Monterey Pop Festival. During his nine-month stay, Hendrix had taken the swinging London scene by storm. To mark his gratitude for the warm welcome he’d received in the UK, the wave of which would propel him into superstardom once back on American turf, Hendrix hand-painted his Stratocaster, lovingly inscribed a poem to it, and then smashed it to pieces.

Opened on King’s Road in October of 1966, the boutique Dandie Fashions proved popular to rock’s elite. Stars like Brian Jones, David Bowie, Roger Daltrey, and Jimi Hendrix coveted their silk frilled shirts, velvet suits, and colorful breasted jackets, and introduced the new style of dress to a public that had up till then favored a more conservative look. source : EMP Museum

Express Yourself

Express Yourself

The Last Billboard’ is a 36-foot-long billboard located at the corner of Highland and Baum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Unlike your usual billboards advertising clothing and jewelry, it is free to anyone who wants to use it.

Every month, a different individual is invited to take over the billboard to broadcast personalized messages, which are spelt out using wooden letters that are changed by hand.

This unusual premise has given rise to some creative and unorthodox messages such as “Intellect versus emotion. Intellect wins. Emotion starts crying” and “I wonder some days if Facebook isn’t a broad all encompassing cry for help.”

The designers behind the billboard, Pablo Garcia and Jon Rubin, started the project a year ago and it’s still going strong.
