Psychedelic Variety Show

April 19th in psychedelic circles is known as “Bicycle Day,” named in commemoration of when a Swiss chemist accidentally discovered (and ingested) LSD, leading to a hallucinatory commute home and the world's first “acid trip” in 1943. The aim of this show to be as kaleidoscopic as that fateful day.

We’re seeking both performers/participants, and audience members/attendees. The event is open to the public and everyone is welcome to come enjoy an evening of raw, real, riveting, rip-roaring stories and acts.
