This past Saturday Shepard Fairey's Banned in Babylon: The Art and Culture of Bad Brains, the art and music shindig at Subliminal Projects happened . He's been a Bad Brains fan for 30 plus years and lucky to work with them on a few projects but nothing like what they were able to put together between Obey Clothing and an incredible group of artists and musicians for an indoor - outdoor feast of Bad Brains. The indoor art included Shepard's work, Darryl Jenifer, photographers Lucian Perkins, Jeannie “Aunt Jean” Pawlowski, and John Mousheghian. And our makeshift music venue in the parking lot showcased Trash Talk, the cream of the crop of the current generation of hardcore, and a supergroup playing Bad Brains songs consisting of Darryl Jenifer of Bad Brains, Peter Stahl of Scream, Chuck Treece of McRad, Moby and secret guest Dave Grohl of Scream and a couple lesser known bands Nirvana and the Foo Fighters.
