Please join Green Apple Books, The San Francisco Elks, and Michael Zagaris in celebrating the release of Total Excess:The Photographs of Michael Zagaris, at the historic SF Elk's Lodge on Union Square, on Tuesday December 13th from 7 – 9PM.
Culled from more than 40 years of behind the scenes (and on the stage) access, Total Access is the first publication to collect hundreds of photos from Zagaris's unseen archive of rock shots. From hanging out with The Clash, to mixing it up with The Who, Michael Zagaris seemed to have been everywhere at once during the 70's and 80's – this before he established himself as the premier Bay Area sports photographer as the full-time shooter for the 49'ers and the Oakland A's – and the images of The Sex Pistols at Winterland, Lou Reed shooting-up heroin on stage, Led Zeppelin in their prime (and countless others) make you feel as if you were there!
Michael Zagaris will be a very active participant at this book launch party, happily signing copies of Total Excess, showing slides of his iconic images, and regaling us all with stories of, well. . . total excess, the likes of which you have not heard before – this, I can guarantee. Not to mention that you and yours will have a chance to enjoy all of this within the beautiful confines of the San Francisco Elk’s Lodge, a private club, opened in 1926. On December 13th, however, all ages are welcome to attend this FREE event, whether you have antlers, or not.
The first 12 to buy tickets (which includes a copy of the book) will be invited for a 30 minute VIP pre-event meet and greet--which includes a drink--with Michael Zagaris at the Lodge from 6:30-7pm at the Lodge.
