In 67 I was 21 and hiring the light shows and bands for the Avalon
Ballroom! I worked for the Family Dog for 2 years and still have the
Avalon's front door key. Groovy.
I have an old friend in Seattle who currently does light shows for
dances, raves, etc. He is famous for using the old oil and water
separation and film strip techniques that were pioneered way back when.
