@ Busboys and Poets 14th & V: Danny Goldberg - In Search of the Lost Chord: 1967 and the Hippie Idea

Upcoming Event
Monday, June 19, 2017 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm

In his magical mystery tour of a book, Goldberg, president of Gold Village Entertainment, and former head of Atlantic Records, looks back over 1967, a year that included the release of the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, and debut albums from the Doors, the Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, and Janis Joplin. Then there was the Summer of Love, LSD, Muhammad Ali’s draft-dodging conviction, Stokely Carmichael and Black Power, the murder of Che Guevara, and much more. Goldberg gives us 1967 as he experienced it and draws on interviews with some of its stars, including Allen Ginsberg, Timothy Leary, Ram Dass, Tom Hayden, and Gil Scott-Heron, showing the year’s lasting cultural and political significance. Goldberg will be in conversation with Sidney Blumenthal, author of A Self-Made Man and Wrestling with His Angel.
