The Big Mother was the third psychedelic night spot in Vancouver, replacing the Retinal Circus which had replaced the Afterthought.

In the June 11th to 17th, 1969 issue of Georgia Straight which was Vancouver's Underground Newspaper was a gig listed at The Big Mother, the band playing was The Northwest Company and the Light Show that evening were listed as Lysertai Light Show.

This information I have only just rediscoverd in my Inbox where it had been hiding since February 5th 2002 (today is January 18th 2023). I get so much information that sometimes I miss kill me :-)

Now its seen the light of day for the first time in 21 years can anyone out there help me with more information on Lysertai Light Show?

Pooterland Note:

There are a few posters with different spellings of this Light Show and as they are all from the same area I'm currently assuming they are all the SAME Light Show


If you can help with more information about this Light Show we would love to hear from you.

Lysergia Light Show, Canada
