ORKUSTRA ORIGINAL CONCERT POSTER / 1967 at Cedar Alley in San Francisco
CA: N.p., 1967. Original poster, 8.5 X 14 inches. Top right corner torn with a closed small tear to top edge, else very good. Okustra was a band that tried a synthesis between symphonic orchestra and psychedelic band. The result was a sort of free from psychedelia. Its members included, Bobby Beausoleil, David Laflamme and others. Beausoleil, wearing his signature top hat, is at bottom right. He would later be involved with Charles Manson and his gang, finally receiving life in prison for the murder of Bobby Hinman--who some claim Manson tried to induct into his gang in order to exploit his inheritance. David Laflamme--the blonde man in the middle bottomælater founded It's a Beautiful Day. In the small square middle left, the man on the right side is Emmett Grogan, who was a founder of the Diggers, a radical community-action group of Improv actors in the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco, California.
