Museums of Sonoma County
Jan 25, 2017 - April 2, 2017

The late 1960s was as volatile a time in music as it was in the rest of society.  Music of the counterculture, psychedelic rock and hippie anthems, grabbed headlines across the country.  Music became part of the national conversation about youth, free love, drugs, and rebellion. The Beat Goes On features rock posters, artifacts and images that trace the influences of music, counterculture and rebellion in the North Bay Area – beyond the limits of San Francisco and the Haight Ashbury district.
