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.
does it say who did the art? My son was 9 days old on this date
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 ...
someday we may know ...
I have the other poster and know the history. Only two originals were produced.
i also have an original.it was in the artrock exibition in95 or 96 in SF.
