In this special blog post, Ryan McGinley recalls the San Francisco opening of his seminal show, Life Adjustment Center, and the surprise set by his pal Christopher Owens of Girls.

"A year ago today was the opening for my show Life Adjustment Center at Ratio 3 Gallery in San Francisco's Mission. Christopher played an acoustic set in the gallery, and everyone sat down on the floor to listen. He had told me about doing a special set for me, and then he played all of these songs that I had never heard at the time. It was the best surprise ever. A lot of them ended up on the new GIRLS album, Father, Son, Holy Ghost. Here are some videos of his performance that night." ––Ryan McGinley.
