About this collection

The Unicorn Times collection includes digitized editions of the arts newspaper dating from October 1973 to May 1985.

 

The Unicorn Times was a small-run music and arts newspaper published in Washington, DC from 1973 to 1985.  Its coverage included music news, performer profiles, reviews, and information of interest to local fans and artists.  In early years, the paper’s focus was primarily on folk, blues, bluegrass, and southern rock music.  Unicorn Times billed itself as "Washington's most complete entertainment calendar since 1973."
