Every great rock ‘n’ roll photograph requires unseen talent behind the camera, and if you follow coverage of jam bands and the hippie scene, then it’s likely the person pressing the shutter is Jay Blakesberg. Since the mid-’80s Blakesberg has been shooting photos of music icons and breakthrough acts from Primus and U2 to Nirvana and Santana. The chief photographer of Lockn’ signs his latest book, Hippie Chick: A Tale of Love, Devotion & Surrender, and shares stories about life with an all-access photo pass.

Tuesday 3/29. No cover, 7pm. Starr Hill Brewery & Tap Room, 5391 Three Notch’d Rd., Crozet. 239-0900.
