Anachronisms 

While Valerie is in revolutionary guy's apartment, we hear "Kick Out The Jams" by the MC5 cranking on the stereo. This scene takes place in June 1968. This very well-known MC5 recording, however, was not recorded until October 30 or 31, 1968 (according to the liner notes), and released in 1969.

Hugh Masekela's "Grazing in the Grass" is being played at the party in The Factory. The scene takes place in 1967, but the song was not recorded until March 1968.

Revealing mistakes 

Valerie visits same newsstand as much as six months apart but same issues of magazines are always on display (with, in some cases, several different issues of same title on view concurrently, something that would never happen), only rearranged.
