Original 1st printing 14&1/4 x 19&7/8" concert poster for the one and only Captain Beefheart (and His Magic Band) appearing with the Charlatans at the Avalon Ballroom in San Francisco, CA from 8/26-27/1966.
Art by Stanley Mouse and Alton Kelley, image is # 23 in the Family Dog/Avalon series.
Medium-thick flat vellum stock poster is in absolutely FANTASTIC near mint (A-) condition; just a slight soft bend in the lower right margin, a couple of semi-soft pinch creases in the lower left corner, a hint of surface wear, a hairline bend in the upper right margin and that's IT.... a VERY bright/crisp specimen.
ULTRA-clean example of an early 1st printing Family Dog poster, this poster (and several others we are featuring in this sale) comes from the collection of underground comix artist (and personal friend of Rick Griffin and Rick Shubb) George Metzger. Read more about George HERE:
