Half-page photo-illustrated ad. announcing "Andy Warhol's Velvet Underground & Nico" at 23 St. Mark's (The Dom) NYC, in THE EAST VILLAGE OTHER #10 (April 15-March 1, 1966 [sic]).

Tabloid size newspaper. 16pp. Ed./pub. Walter Bowart.

The ad's sub-heading promises "Superstars Gerard Malanga And Mary Woronov On Film On Stage On Vinyl" for the Exploding Plastic Inevitable's month-long residency, a multimedia show that has since passed into legend.

The half-page above the ad. prints John Wilcock's review, titled "A 'High' School of Music and Art", in which he describes the scene from the opening night: "Twice during the evening were sets by the Velvet Underground, a group whose howling, throbbing beat is amplified and extended by electronic dial-twiddling… haunting in its uniqueness…. Art has come to the discotheque and it will never be the same again."

Also: a report from the Acid Tests in San Francisco by Richard Honigman; an underground tattoo parlor on the Lower East Side by Walter Bowart; John Wilcock's Other Scenes column; The Bridge Theatre (Aldo Tambellini et al); Bowart on "Leary's Politics & Ethics of Ecstasy" + ad. for Leary at the Town Hall; a report on EVO's April Fool Dance & Models Ball, with mentions of performances by The Velvet Underground and The Fugs; review of DMT multi-media show (Jackie Cassen, Ralph Metzner, with photo of the former); Lil Picard on Warhol at the Castelli Gallery; Rochelle Owens on "Water Light/Water Needle: a Carolee Schneemann kinetic theater happening"; ad. for The Fugs at the Astor Place Playhouse; more.
