Quicksilver

Gene Sculatti, Fusion, April 1972

The once-famous logo, "May the Baby Jesus Shut Your Mouth and Open Your Mind," has been supplanted by an outsized plastic marquee proclaiming ‘Summer of 42’/‘They Shoot Horses, Don't They?’ At Sutter and Van Ness, in San Francisco, the Avalon Ballroom is now the Regency II theatre and 1966 is half a decade past.

Total word count of piece: 1380
