For 40 years, our friends at Last Gasp have kept the counterculture busy with books, publishing wild, weird, wonderful, and subversive works by R. Crumb, Robert Wilson, Diane di Prima, Mark Ryden, Timothy Leary, and a slew of other greats. This Thursday, April 1 in San Francisco, Last Gasp will celebrate with the opening of a major art show and party at the 111 Minna Gallery. The line-up is mindblowing with works by: Tim Biskup, Glenn Barr, R. Crumb, Frank Kozik, Camille Rose Garcia, Mark Ryden, Winston Smith, Stanislav Szukalski, Basil Wolverton, Ed Hardy, Charles Gatewood, Liz McGrath, Laurenn McCubbin, Jay Kinney, and dozens of others. Our pals at Gama-Go even created a special t-shirt for the anniversary. The 21+ over event is free, public, and starts at 6pm. di Prima is reading at 6:30pm. Congratulations, Last Gasp! Thanks for keeping the dream alive, and the underground literate.
