Hells Angels Benefit, Anderson Theater - 11/23/70

Original poster for the 11/23/70 concert at the Anderson Theater in NYC. I attended this show which opened with a pantomime guy, followed by New Riders with Jerry. I think the Dead played acoustic for a while , followed by electric set .. but no confirmation of this can be found, and I was tripping... so grain of salt.

This poster is an original, not one of the reprints, which I was given by a friend in 1973. It is about 35" x 24" and seems to be silk-screened on fairly heavy stock.

Enjoy

ur question ...

There is no attribution other than the Hells Angels logo bottom right. The story is 2 HA girlfriends did the art but that is uncorroborated to my knowledge.

If you review Art of Rock poster 4.222, another HA Dead show in NYC about 4 months later, there does seem to be some similarity in design .. here is a link ...
