On May 22 Black­tooth Pro­duc­tions will be going back to the Six­ties with an evening of read­ings, music and anec­dotes.

A back­ward glance toward, and a cel­e­bra­tion of, the rad­i­cal writ­ing , pol­i­tics, and music of the late 60’s.

We will also be draw­ing on mem­oirs of the time and extracts from the under­ground press to pro­vide an authen­tic voice, and a source of amusement.
