The history, culture, and influence of punk-reggae band Bad Brains is currently being displayed as ‘Banned In Babylon: The Art and Culture of Bad Brains’ at L.A.’s SUBLIMINAL PROJECTS, in partnership with OBEY CLOTHING. The fine arts show, which is on exhibit July 23, 2016 – August 20, 2016, features performance photography of the band from as far back as 1979 taken by two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Lucian Perkins, Brains super-fan John Mousheghian, and Jeannie “Aunt Jean” Pawlowski, sketches and paintings by Bad Brains founder/producer/bassist/composer Darryl Jenifer, mixed-media paintings and prints by Shepard Fairey, and vintage and…(click here for more)

Dr. Know of Bad Brains has had a bad run of health issues. After incurring a ton of medical bills and not being able to work, a gofundme.com site has been set up to help Dr. Know with his current state. From the gofundme site:
As many of you know, Gary Miller (aka Dr. Know or Doc), guitarist of the Legendary Washington DC punk band Bad Brains, suffered cardiac arrest in early November last year. His condition quickly progressed to multiple organ failure, and he was on life support for almost 2 weeks. At the time, his doctors gave him a 5% chance of survival. But by the power of PMA, LOVE and FAMILY, he was able to pull through and survive.
We started this campaign in an effort to raise money for Doc’s medical expenses and additional care that will be needed once he returns home. Doc did not have medical insurance at the time of his hospitalization, and the multiple medical bills have created an overwhelming financial strain that Doc and his family are not able to handle on their own. Since Doc has been unable to work since early November when this happened, he also needs help with his living expenses until he can make a full recovery and get back to work.
All funds contributed to this campaign will be directly deposited into a bank account created by a representative of the Bad Brains specifically for this purpose. Any amount of money you can contribute to this fund is greatly appreciated by Doc and his family.
To help Dr. Know, please visit the site HERE.
