A rare handbill for Caterpillar Changes, a multi-media event held during February and March, 1967 at the Filmmaker’s Cinematheque in New York.  The two-week event featured music by The Gato Barbieri Quintet and Larry Coryell and the Free Spirits and appearances and films by Andy Warhol, Harry Smith, Jonas Mekas, Barbara Rubin, Jack Smith, Gerard Malanga, D.A. Pennebaker and many others.  At the bottom are listed “Angus Maclise & The Velvet Underground in The Dental Destruction of The Chairs a Mass Mental Concentration Against Furniture By Movies Movie Movies…..”  While no researchers seem able to pinpoint what exactly the Velvets did with their original drummer Maclise, we’re sure it was unconventional, to say the least.  This handbill comes from the personal scrapbook of the Velvet Underground’s late drummer Sterling Morrison.  The front is in near excellent condition, the back has rubber cement stains from the scrapbook (barely visible on the front.)  There are two horizontal machine folds.  This will frame beautifully.  A scarce Velvets handbill with exceptional provenance, from a band member’s collection.
