1970 Ads: The Electric Circus

Selected 1970 Voice ads for the Electric Circus. A lot of them were missing, but that doesn't necessarily mean the club wasn't advertising on a weekly basis. Quite a few pages in the sections where club and concert ads typically ran were either missing or were partially cut off, which I assume was due to some kind of malfunction in the microfilming process.

1/15/70 issue.

1/22/70 issue. Not sure if the Dylan misquote is deliberate.

1/29/70 issue. "Turn on. (Here.)"

2/5/70 issue. Kinda late to reference a "12 x 5" era photo, no?

2/12/70 issue.
