I was lookin' for a poster - again, something in the early to mid-60s to continue my soul-renewing process before continuing with Bill Graham Fillmore posters - and this is what you're getting. One poster I looked at had 22 - 22! - bands. I'd be sittin' here all day, possibly into Tuesday morning listening to music links to show examples of the bands on the poster. I don't get paid by the hour, you know. Twenty two bands! Who's gonna feed the cat? Who's gonna bandage my ankle when the cat bites me because he didn't get fed? You have noooooooo idea what I do for you, do you? And we make the assumption there's something to listen to... some of these bands existed for 14 minutes and didn't leave any recordings. I'll tackle those 22 bands eventually - I like a challenge - but not today. For now, you'll get this and like it... or not hate it... or ignore it... I guess I'm lucky if you even pause on the page the thumbnail is on...

This poster, by an unknown artist, is for a show of the San Francisco Mime Troupe on December 27, 1966. It was held at the Blind Lemon, a folk club in Berkeley which was opened by folk singers Rolf Cahn and Barbara Dane in 1958, the year that the Kingston Trio released “Tom Dooley.” And yes, it was named after Blind Lemon Jefferson. Don't waste brain cells on any of that... life is too short.

The SF Mime Troupe (help... I'm trapped in a box...) performs free shows in various parks in the San Francisco Bay Area and around California. They don't do silent mime, but original political satire.

In the lower left corner it says "Sacrifice $1.50" instead of donation or ticket price. Read into that what you will.

mpp, the Kingston Trio were great and Tom Dooley, ……. well, we all knew that song by heart .
I think the poster is a bit bland compared to some we've seen, (I enjoyed doing it) - but hey its all in a day's work, and I hope you're charging John overtime !! (❀ᴗ❀)

Well, I may not get any posters ready! You mentioned a few menu items I have not tasted in a while, and I'll be busy pushing my tray down the line smpling everything.

Welcome to the 'mpp Cafeteria'. Our dessert special today is Blind Lemon, but be sure to sample all of the homemade goodies while you are waiting in the never ending line of patrons... all three of them. I'm sure there must be a 'silent majority' out there somewhere, mute individuals that don't speak, victims of gastroenteritis that can't eat anything spicy and those that never got the energy to remove their head from... the sand. (My apologies to all the anal retentive people, no anal references today). What's on the menu? For appetizers we have Cranberries, Raspberries, Strawberry Alarm Clock, Electric Prunes and Peaches and Herb. Entree's include Korn, Black Eyed Peas, Meatloaf, Country Joe's Fish and Red Hot Chili Peppers. And for dessert, in addition to Blind Lemon, we have Humble Pie with Cream, Vanilla Fudge, Vanilla Ice and Bananarama…. but don't forget about today's special, Blind Melon...

I'm not going to try this one - you're right, it can be deceptive.

Take precautions, mpp -- psychedelic pink may make you crazy! I'm still squinting.
