Friday, August 27th is Elysium’s monthly theme show, and our theme this month is WOODSTOCK! Let’s go get stoned! Okay, so that’s not really the theme. The theme is:
The Summer of Love
The Summer of Love was a social phenomenon that occurred during the summer of 1967, when as many as 100,000 people, mostly young people sporting hippie fashions of dress and behavior, converged in San Francisco’s neighborhood of Haight-Ashbury. More broadly, the Summer of Love encompassed the hippie music, drug, anti-war, and free-love scene throughout the West Coast of the United States, and as far away as New York City.
Hippies, sometimes called flower children, were an eclectic group. Many were suspicious of the government, rejected consumerist values, and generally opposed the Vietnam War. A few were interested in politics; others were concerned more with art (music, painting, poetry in particular) or spiritual and meditative practices.
Woodstock was a music festival held August 15–18, 1969 attracting an audience of more than 400,000. The festival has become widely regarded as a pivotal moment in popular music history as well as a defining event for the counterculture generation.
If you want to join in on the spirit of the show, feel free to come dressed to theme! Not required of course.
If it’s Friday, it’s Elysium Cabaret! Fancy some imagination in a fun social setting? In The Empire Room at Copperhead Road, every Friday at 6pm SLT, the dynamic performers of Elysium Cabaret take the stage to bring you a solid hour of entertainment! Featuring elaborate sets, stunning costumes and choreography sequenced to an eclectic genre of music, Elysium Cabaret offers something for everyone.
