Andrea, Jackie, Candy, Danny, Jason, Taylor, and Mickey



Live and in color! This is Max's Kansas City video shot by Anton Perich including Andrea Feldman, Jackie Curtis, Candy Darling, Danny Fields, Jason Holiday, Taylor Mead, Mickey Ruskin, and a plethora of others. At 14 minutes & 15 seconds, there isn't any sound until about the 13 minute mark, but it's worth going through for the you-are-there-ness of it. Color photographs from this scene are difficult enough to come by, never mind color film!

This is the edited version of a series of short clips by Perich, and currently being shown at the Steven Kasher Gallery from September 15, 2010-October 9, 2010. See more images from the show here.



Speaking of color, lets give another plug to the other Max's-related exhibition happening now as well at the Loretta Howard Gallery. Click this link or the JPEG below for more info.

It's taking it's sweet ass time loading but I'm sure it'll be amazing when I watch it in a few minutes...thanks. I've aleady added it to "Max's" list on my site. And by the way...since you removed the "Tag Cloud" from your front page Stupefaction seems to be loading much faster...

...and whatever happened to that cool van shown from about 6:18-6:28? A Max's delivery van? Whatever, it looks cool and I want it.

How cool is that van? I wonder what the deal was with that other city listed on it...did you notice that?

Glad getting rid of the tag cloud worked. You & Lindsay from Next Big Thing both mentioned the slowness issue and I finally decided to try that. It seems to have worked.

The other city listed on the van..."Max's Terre Haute", the short-lived uptown Max's location, was opened in '69 and lasted just a few years. Was located at 1359 First Avenue...

Yvonne Sewall-Ruskin
"The original concept of Max's Terre Haute, located at 1359 First Avenue, on the southwest corner of Seventy-third, was to attract the hip Upper East Side artsy crowd. Frosty (Meyers) displayed his talent once again by designing a laser beam that went around the restaurant and ended up at the restrooms. So when someone asked the bartender or the waitresses where the bathrooms were, they would say, "Just follow the laser beam." Johanna Lawrenson installed a small boutique, the place was painted, and the lighting was changed. But what Mickey found out is that the crowd that the restaurant attracted was not his crowd, and so the initial excitemant wore off shortly after it opened and the place just fizzled."
