About three dozen prints from Jason DeBord and his work as a photojournalist covering concerts for the Rock Subculture Journal are currently on exhibit at the The Press Club in Monterey, California. DeBord’s work is collected as the first solo exhibition at Monterey County Weekly’s new space, and also served as the focus of “A Rock ‘N’ Roll Art Opening” on January 16, 2015, which also included a performance by San Francisco rock band, Down and Outlaws. The exhibition launched in December 2014 and runs through the end of February 2015.
In addition to the concert photography on exhibit at The Press Club in Seaside/Monterey, Jason DeBord’s work and story served as the cover feature with an extensive interview in the latest issue of The Monterey County Weekly.
