The Mothers And Lenny Bruce
Lenny Bruce drew capacity crowds to the Fillmore Auditorium for his show Friday and Saturday. It was something of a tribute to him since the hall is not really the best site for his performances. He could not work effectively with the noisy rock dancers waiting for the music and his own fans were uncomfortable from the heat and the chairs.
The Mothers, the rock band which followed Bruce, and played for dancing, are Hollywood hippies full of contrivance, tricks and packaging; a kind of Sunset Boulevard version of The Fugs. They are really indoor Muscle Beach habitues whose idea of a hip lyric is to mention "LSD" or "pot" three times in eight bars.
