    Description

    Dr. Timothy Leary 1966 Southern California "Total Psychedelic Environment" Show Poster. An original cardboard window card advertising the appearance of LSD guru Dr. Timothy Leary at Los Angeles' El Monte Legion Stadium on Friday and Saturday nights, December 9 and 10, 1966. And we mean nights: each date had a late show that didn't even start until 1:00 AM.

    A lot of production must have gone into this, because the $5.00 ticket price was rather stiff for 1966. The poster promised a "total psychedelic environment" created by New York video and light show pioneer Jackie Cassen, whose work was chronicled in Life magazine, and neon light multi-media artist Rudi Stern. "Dance to Raga and Rock Groups," the sign promises; being Los Angeles, we wonder which up & coming talent might have played? Whoever it was, this board promised attendees a "Total Turn On."

    Measures 14" x 22 1/8" and grades to Very Good condition. Surface scuffing is the main issue here, with significant light scuffing to all of the black printing. (Excess ink in the top couple of lines is printer's anomaly.) Upper two corners dinged with different kinds of creases; bottom two corners just soft. There's also a one-inch horizontal edge tear on the right, just above "Environment." COA from Heritage Auctions.
