2012, It’s Been Real, But We’re Ready For 2013… Plus New Music By Rochelle Jordan

Wow, 2012 flew by, right? So much great music in so little time makes keeping up this blog a rewarding challenge. We hope all the regular Pearl Mic’ers enjoyed the music, news and highlights that we have provided this year. We sincerely thank you for your support and encouragement. We plan for 2013 to be bigger and better.

Our personal highlights this year is meeting Iggy Azalea at Sneaker Pimps LA, visiting the Who Shot Rock & Roll exhibit, and blushing as Timothy Bloom performed his melodies at Rachel Assil’s concert. We want to create much more exciting memories for 2013, and we hope you can join us for the ride.

Our last music post of 2012 is Rochelle Jordan’s Impossible. Enjoy:

LA Timez: Our Visit to the Who Shot Rock & Roll Exhibit

Despite of the 104 degree heat that attempted to smother Los Angeles on Saturday, we made our way to the Who Shot Rock & Roll at The Annenberg Space for Photography. Upon entering into the cool of the space, we were immediately refreshed and inspired by the works of art displayed before us.

The exhibit showcased 166 original prints from gutsy shutterbugs such as Bob Gruen, Mark Seliger, Norman Seeff , Stephanie Chernikowski, Lynn Goldsmith, Jill Furmanovsky and many others. Each photo was placed in themes – “Starting Out,” “Album Covers, ” “Performance,”etc.—which channeled the way artists were portrayed on and off stage. What added the cherry on top to this event was the Who Shot Rock & Roll documentary. In that short film, it was Linda McCartney’s story that we were drawn to.

The story of a stunning, music-loving receptionist who by fate became a famous photographer; shooting music icons such as The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Janis Joplin and many other musicians.

Overall, Who Shot Rock & Roll is a great exhibit that brought everyone from baby boomers to curious college students in one room to celebrate the movers and shakers of Rock and Roll music.
