Rough Trade East hosts launch party for book on psychedelia and cultural history of LSD

On August 27 Rough Trade East in London’s Brick Lane will be hosting the launch party of Rob Chapman’s new book Psychedelia and Other Colours. Chapman’s previous endeavours include Syd Barrett: A Very Irregular Head, and the focus of his new book revolves around the cultural impact of and history surrounding LSD.

The event at Rough Trade East kicks off with a DJ set from Justin Robertson, followed by a conversation between Chapman and legendary producer and DJ Andrew Weatherall, which will run from 7-7.45PM. After the talk will be a live set from psychedelic pop group Magnetic Mind, followed by more music from Robertson.

The book is published by Faber & Faber and is due to hit the shelves on September 3. If you pre-order a copy of Psychedelia and Other Colours you can secure two wristbands for the event now. If you buy a copy at the launch you’ll get your wristbands at the same time. Books can be pre-ordered here.
