Ken Babbs Spread, Soquel CA

Parallel to the commercial fortunes of The Warlocks, the band had been hanging out with Ken Kesey and his Merry Pranksters. In their new incarnation as The Grateful Dead, they had begun playing Acid Tests with the Pranksters (remember, LSD was legal until October 6, 1966). The band was unbilled, since The Acid Tests themselves were only cryptically advertised.(1)

Jerry performed here on
11/27/65 Grateful Dead
"A poster for the first Acid Test at the Spread in Santa Cruz on Nov. 27, 1965 exists."(1)
