Team Janis Joplin is incredibly sad to hear that the legendary Threadgill's Headquarters will be closing in Austin, TX. Threadgill's was a regular haunt for Janis before she shipped out to San Francisco in 1963. Thanks for the memories!

There’s no doubt about that! Listen to Janis wail on “Summertime,” live in 1969. — #JanisJoplin #RollingStone #KeepMusicLive #Summertime #SouthernRock

It gave a sense of something religious going on.” - @rollingstone Magazine Janis + BBHC have stolen our hearts and then some with their music. Make sure to preorder SEX, DOPE & CHEAP THRILLS, finally released 50 years later under the band’s intended title for the smash album. Available November 30th. Hit the bio link for more info.

Happy Birthday to fellow rock goddess, @graceslickofficial of @jeffersonairplaneofficial! Photographer Jim Marshall was lucky enough to get a few snaps of Janis & Grace back in 1967: “Janis wasn’t in the mood to do any pictures that day, but I begged her and she came [to shoot with Grace]. Everyone always thought there was a huge rivalry between Janis and Grace, but they were dear friends.” Pictured: Jim’s snaps of Grace and Janis for Teen Set Magazine, 1967. — #JanisJoplin #GraceSlick #JeffersonAirplane #RockPhotography #MusicLegend
