Bangalow A&I Hall, Saturday 14 July.

The Songs of the Haight Ashbury Stage Show changed the world forever. A dedicated co-op of artists from the northern rivers has created a world-class show that explores the music and philosophy of the infamous Summer of Love.

It was 1967 in the Haight Ashbury district of San Francisco when this cultural tsunami began that engulfed America, and then the world. Music had taken acid and gone electric.

This exciting ‘huge night of fun’ has been described as a ‘smash hit’, ‘superb’, and ‘electric’, and is selling out and packing rooms wherever it goes, getting audiences out of their seats and roaring for a revolution.

Your host S Sorrensen takes you by the hand and lovingly guides you through a psychedelic rainbow of musical excellence as performed by James T, Lil’Fi, Bill Jacobi, Diana Anaid, Connor Cleary and Zardi O’Connell.

This is the last Byron Shire show for 2012, so if you have been meaning to catch it but haven’t got around to it yet, now is the time.

More information at www.rainbowregiongigs.com.

Catch them at the A&I Hall, Bangalow, 8pm Saturday 14 July; $25.
