Tune In, Turn On, Drop Out (Or At Least Tune In): EVO Livestreamed!

eye Look for EVO alumni wearing these pins tomorrow.

If you haven’t heard by now, you’ve probably been living under a rock (or smoking too much banana peel): Tomorrow evening, we’re hosting a groovy little happening to celebrate the opening of “Blowing Minds: The East Village Other, the Rise of Underground Comix and the Alternative Press, 1965-1972.”

In a series of personal essays published over the past several weeks, some of the wonderfully warped minds behind EVO have been looking back on the pioneering alternative paper, and the era from which it emerged. Tomorrow, some of them – including Ed Sanders, Alex Gross, Peter Leggieri, Dan Rattiner, Steven Heller, and Claudia Dreifus – will appear on a panel moderated by John McMillan, author of “Smoking Typewriters: The Sixties Underground Press and the Rise of Alternative Media in America.”

If you can’t R.S.V.P. and make it to 20 Cooper Square, 6th floor, check back here at 6:30 p.m. tomorrow, when The Local will be streaming the event live. Otherwise join us in person – we’ll provide the booze if you BYOB (Bring Your Own Bananas).
