It's the groovy '60s all over again in the city

You'll have a '60s flashback at these exhibitions and events in the city this weekend.


1. GRATEFUL DEAD

WHAT

The quintessential San Francisco band had a long association with New York. "The Grateful Dead: Live at the New-York Historical Society," opening today, displays materials from the Grateful Dead Archive at the University of California Santa Cruz - including videos, posters, album art, decorative fan mail, stage props and more.

WHEN | WHERE

Through July 4 at the New-York Historical Society, 170 Central Park W.

INFO

$12, 212-873-3400, nyhistory.org


2. R. CRUMB

WHAT

In the '60s, the granddaddy of underground comics was famous for his trippy "Keep on Truckin'" comic and characters like Fritz the Cat and Mr. Natural. He's still hard at work; this show (which opened yesterday) presents the drawings for "R. Crumb's Book of Genesis," a retelling of the Bible story in the artist's typically far-out style.

WHEN | WHERE

Through April 24 at David Zwirner Gallery, 519 W. 19th St.

INFO

Free, 212-727-2070, davidzwirner.com


3. JUDY COLLINS

WHAT

Folk legend Judy Collins began recording in 1961, but she belongs to the ages. She brings her amazing voice and musical gifts to Town Hall for a one-night-only performance that's sure to include a few of the '60s hits she's famous for.

WHEN | WHERE

Friday night at 8. The Town Hall, 123 W. 43rd St.

INFO

$50 and $45, 212-307-4100, the-townhall-nyc.org
