1972 Ads: Max's Kansas City

Selected 1972 Voice ads for Upstairs at Max's Kansas City.  Again, many issues are missing from the archive, so there are only about six months' worth of ads here.  My blog-colleague Bryan at This Ain't the Summer of Love has already compiled a near-complete Max's show list, but I decided to collect the ads anyway--if only for the sheer surreality of seeing, in bold print, some of the mellow and/or mainstream acts that once played at a venue we tend to think of as THEE bastion of proto-punk-into-punk.  Speaking of blog-colleagues (blog-eagues???), I should also thank Stupefaction's Tim B. yet again for another recent head's-up, this time on Ed McCormack's Max's memories.  And don't miss Jeremiah's VNY this week, as he's taking us on a guided tour into Swing Street's sordid past.

Awesome stuff D.C. - thanks for the link to my Max's monstrosity as well. I'll be going through these and adding anything I don't have - I'm still missing ALOT of dates but now I know of the Voice Archives thanks to you and your hard work...it's really gonna fill in the early years of the Upstairs shows. Hope to get around to it soonish but you know how that goes...
Cheers!

Great stuff, but these sites are missing all the 1979/1980 Max's shows with the "Death To Disco"/ Jimi LaLumia & The Psychotic Frogs gigs..!!!!!
