love this poster - surprised that the MC5 didn't get top billing though - i thought they were much more popular back in the day

It was more a reflection of the venue. For a few years, The Boston Tea Party was one of the few joints in America where the Velvets were sufficiently beloved by its patrons that they could get a booking anytime they needed one (they didn't become a fixture in New York until '69).
