Target Video at PFA/Berkeley Art Museum

Sorry to all of you who were turned away from the PFA show last Saturday. It's exciting to have a sold out show, but a drag for those who missed it. Try again at the "Pioneers of Punk" show at the Fillmore on July 26th. Tix in advance from the Fillmore. Target Video is up first, so get there early!
We were glad to see many old friends including Sam Edwards (Target,) John Gullack (The Mutants,) V.Vale (Search and Destroy,) legendary photographer Ruby Ray and former Damage Magazine writer Shoshana Wechsler.
See you at the Fillmore!

Thanks to everyone who came down to Geffen/MOCA on Saturday night! It was a great show that kicked off with 2 hours of great classics from back-in-the-day provided by Henry Rollins. It was cool to hear such clean versions of the music.

The crowd of 1200 was totally enthusiastic about the cavalcade of videos from Target that flowed for the next 2 hours. We'd love to hear from you which your favorites were. Well, we have an idea, but tell us anyway!

Don't know if anyone knew the shirts were for sale in the store. You can still pick one up.

Next show is at the Pacific Film Archive at the Berkeley Art Museum in Berkeley on Thursday, June 19. Be there!

Well, it was Jackie & Jill's birthdays...Joe was in town...friends were in LA for the Getty show hell, "Let's have a little Target Party!" While it could never match the huge parties of the past, it was really great and we all had a blast. Flipper was in town for the Getty show and their gigs at the House of Blues. Penelope Houston decided to stay over for the party too. We were so glad she did! Others that came: Cliff Roman, Edward Stapleton, Michael Ullencott, Hector Pinolosa, Paul Roessler, Chip & Tony Kinman, Jimmy Wilsey, Brendan Mullen, Michael Ostendorf, Alan Korn, Bill Anderson and many folks who's names are swimming still in my brain....

March 13, 2008: The Getty opening for the "California Video" show was a total blast. So many old friends turned up for the festivities. Not everyone made the photo...missing in action was Bruce Loose who was downstairs doing God knows what. The show is brilliant. It really is quite a feat of art and electronics. Get yourselves over/up to the Getty Center and check it out. The show runs through June 8.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Target will be showing a full program at the Geffen/MOCA in Japantown on June 7, 2008. No reservations necessary. It will be a fun night of video outside (projected on a big wall) and a party atmosphere. Be there!

Flipper DVD Release

The Flipper DVD contains two live shows from the early 1980's. The first is from Berkeley, CA where they spent a few weekdays playing for friends and fans at the Berkeley Square. The second show is their set opening for Throbbing Gristle's last show at Kezar Stadium, San Francisco, CA.

So you get a club show and a stadium show all on one DVD. How great is that, OK?
