next Quips & Clips November 2nd-2019

Get Your Tickets

Hale Milgrim (aka, the Trip Master) has mined his personal archives for rare concert footage and insider stories. Thanks to a lot of help from his friends, he will lead a magical mystery tour of outstanding artists from the 60’s to the present and share rarely heard rock ’n roll stories. While we cannot reveal who will be the subject of many of the clips, don’t worry–you’re in for a very special evening.

Milgrim’s musical journey started behind the counter at Isla Vista’s Discount Records, and has spiraled upward through a succession of positions at major record labels, leading eventually to a stint as the President/CEO of Capitol Records. Since returning to Santa Barbara with his wife Anne, he has continued to work and support local music (including Sings Like Hell), and hosted a Sunday radio show, “Go to Hale,” which aired for over six years on KTYD.

Audiences can look forward to memorable insights, commentary and illumination from Hale–well,
at least everything he remembers… or not!
