Signs of Leonard Cohen: Ad for 1970 UCLA Concert: “A program of now poetry and music for beautiful losers and saints of all age”

Ad for the 1970 Leonard Cohen and The Army concert at Royce Hall: I especially like the performance being styled as “a program of now poetry and music for beautiful losers and saints of all ages,” in the expectation that those viewing the ad would be interested in Cohen’s poetry as well as his music and would also recognize the allusions to his literary work. (OK, I also like the prices: $5.50, $4.75, $4.00, $3.25; Students $2.50)
