Surprise — Rock & Roll at the De Young


Whirling Dervish performs in Wilsey Court of the De Young Museum, Sumer of Love, 2017

We arrived at the De Young Museum with the intent of taking a look at Golden Gate Park and San Francisco from the Hamon Tower observation deck, but found a party in progress. We postponed our plans and joined the celebration for the opening of a new exhibition, Summer of Love.

Tom Finch’s SF Airship is a tribute band: Jefferson Starship, which formed in the early 70’s, and played rock & roll in the San Francisco style of the Summer of Love. (Read and watch the story of the Summer of Love, here.)

Let the dancing go on in Wilsey Court — unbelievable.

Well, we did finally visit the observation deck and the views were beautiful on this sunny spring day.
