Freak Out! - picture story
It was Freak Out, Son of GUAMBO (the Great Underground Artists' Masked Ball and Orgy) and of necessety the Mothers of Invention were on hand with their big band electronic sound, and The Factory, and others. And there was a light show, and stroboscopic lights on the dancers, and it was in the Shrine Exposition Hall in Los Angeles, and there were five thousand people. And it was the people, the people most all, in ecstatic garb, from the kids to the hippies and beats of yesteryear, all there, all coming together. And they called for a memorial freak-in for Lenny Bruce at the cemetery (bring box lunches and noisemakers). And they say thet even the fuzz freaked out.
