WHY?
Money, of course. Conspiracy is not funded by the University, or
any other corporate interests. To make close to $10,000 in ad-
vance payments and deposits for the Coasters-Drifters-Crystals
concert in Hill Auditorium, we had to sell about that much in ad-
vance tickets. It didn't happen. ITEM: Talent costs. ITEM: $3,000
advance payment for Hill Auditorium, not including either required
city police, or our own security. ITEM: Several thousand dollars

in print and radio advertising, etc., etc., etc. We were faced with
a situation of 1) a possible loss of six-to-seven thousand dollars
by going ahead, or 2) the certain loss of three-or-so thousand
by cancelling now. In the humility of our cooperative poverty, we
didn't gamble. We're sorry. Our dream of "Charlie Brown,"
"Yackety-Yak," "Under the Boardwalk," "He's a Rebel," all on a
summer evening, is frustrated, too.

How can we guarantee that the incredible Blues Show and the incompar-
able Mahavishnu Rock Experience will happen? The practical point is
clear: if you buy your tickets early-don't wait-they will happen. We're
confident about advance sales to date, but we can't do it without you.

A Rock Experience:
THE MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA
FEATURING THE INCOMPARABLE
JOHN McLAUGHLIN
"The Biggest thing since the Beatles!"-Nat Weiss
"His influence may ultimately surpass that of Hendrix and Clspton."-Lester
Bangs, Village Voice
" Has a blazing devotional message that cannot be missed by anyone who
sees the shivers of rapture pass like quickly changing seasons on John McLeugh-
lin's face as he bends back from his instrument and sends a searing flash of a
prayer straight to the heart of God."-Stephen Davis, Rolling Stone
Music thet seems to go as far as music can from the fingers of mortal
musicians-ibid
"One of the few groups that earns its reputation as Superstar."-N.Y. Times
It is impossible to convey into words the depth, intensity, magnetism, and high
energy of the Mahavishnu Orchestra . . . so pick up their latest album, "Inner
Mounting Flame," and hear for yourself what all the. excitement is about. P.S.:
McLaughlin sells out virtually every show he and his group do . . . usually at
$3.50-4.50-5.50 or more. We got them at a good time, and this will probably
be the last time to see them for $3.00.
FRIDAY &
SATURDAY
