On October 26, 1966, the Facells and Flock were advertised to play Two Red Shoes on the 28th. The use of “hippy” was a new term being used in San Francisco to describe the beat movement as it was becoming adopted in the youth movement of the ’60s. The ad reads, “Hear the Hippy Hipsters themselves – It’s the Facells plus the Beat crazy sound of the Flock”. Albert Bonici who dubbed the Beatles, “Love Me Do boys”, often generated interest in little known bands with superlatives when placing ads in the local papers. He advertised “beatnic”,”mod”,”masked” balls and the like to get local youth excited.
