The Velvet Undereground & Nico in 1967...



Item # 703356

February 16, 1967

THE VILLAGE VOICE (weekly), Greenwich Village, New York City, Feb. 16, 1967

* Andy Warhol's The Velvet Underground & Nico
* Before their first album was released (March 12)
* Electric Circus underground nightclub performance


Page 29 has a 5 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch advertisement for a "NICO" gig at the newly opened "Electric Circus" in Greenwich Village. (see image) I suspect this to be an extremely rare item because their was really no reason to save it at the time.
It is worth noting that "The Village Voice" was an American news and culture paper, known for being the country's first alternative newsweekly. Founded in 1955, the Voice began as a platform for the creative community of New York City.
Complete with 40 pages, tabloid size, one fold along the center, nice condition.

Provenance note: This issue comes from The Village Voice's own archives, part of their in-house collection used to create their digital archive. Rare as such.

Alert: Many issues of The Village Voice contain articles and/or photos which some consider offensive, and are certainly inappropriate for children. Please purchase with discretion.
