Re: New VU date and poster Aug 1968!

1969 seems to be the right year. Anyway just between the Hilltop Pop Festival and a show at the Boston Tea Party, the Velvets would have been in the area. Plus I found someone remembering the James Taylor show mentioned on the poster as "summer 1969" -- see the comments at https://www.facebook.com/J...

Re: THE VELVET UNDERGROUND IN BOSTON

The 'spiral staircase' photo was shot by Lynn Goldsmith. As for the place, I think it might be The Second Fret in Philadelphia PA. Check out the photo published in 5th issue of What Goes On fanzine (p. 16). See the spiral staircase backstage? Olivier http://olivier.landemaine.free.fr/vu/temp/2nd_fre...

Howdy, where in Boston was the Unicorn? From all I've been able to gather it wasn't around very long. The Unicorn was 815 Boylston Street, Boston, MA (Now the new Apple Store).
