Today's Local Music: Big Brother & the Holding Company

Today’s music is by a San Francisco band with a unique name: Big Brother & the Holding Company. Janis Joplin, the group’s lead singer, has been drawing a lot of attention on her own.

Big Brother & the Holding Company is one of several acts appearing this weekend at the Monterey International Pop Festival.
