It's been 75 years since Albert Hoffman took his fateful bike ride after ingesting LSD-25, a chemical compound he synthesized mere days before. The wild adventure that followed has become memorialized for the last three-quarters of a century, and next month, some of the most acclaimed psychedelic artists on the planet will celebrate with a whirlwind tour.
Simon Posford returns to the United States for three high profile Shpongle dates accompanied by iconic painters and speakers Alex and Allyson Grey. Joining the tour is breakout star Charles Ingalls, who will be bringing his CharlestheFirst project back to The Untz Festival in June.
Over three dates, the tour hits three major markets in San Francisco on April 19th, which is the actual date of Hoffman's "trip," and opens the run at The Midway. Then it's on to The Mayan in Los Angeles on April 20th with special guests to be announced. Finally, the tour heads to New Orleans on April 21st for a date at the Joy Theater.
This major undertaking is the work of Euphonic Conceptions along with the Legion of Bloom, who are bringing together a number of mind-bending artists, musicians, and performers to make each of these stops as unforgettable as that bike ride. Visit www.ecpresents.com to snag your tickets today.
