A very rare original concert poster advertising May, 1966 shows by Andy Warhols Exploding Plastic Inevitable featuring the Velvet Underground and Nico, at the Sunset Strip club The Trip (the New Shrine of Pop Culture). Silkscreened onto thin cardboard, the artwork reproduces the April 25, 1966 cover of Newsweek featuring a Roy Lichtenstein painting, and the Campbells Soup kids in the lower right corner. While the Velvet Underground was scheduled to perform two weeks of shows, the run was shut down by the Los Angeles Sheriffs Department after a few nights. This exceptional poster is highly sought after and for good reasonits from an early and legendary gig while the Velvets were part of Warhols multi-media Exploding Plastic Inevitable, has bold pop art colors, prominently mentions Warhol, and appropriates Roy Lichtensteins brilliant Time Magazine Pop cover. The 14 x 22 poster is in near excellent condition and displays beautifully. While this particular poster tends to fade in the sunlight, the colors on this example are bold and unfaded. There is a bit of light age toning around the edges and across the bottom, but this is a minor distraction. A few tiny chips to the surface around the edges are barely noticeable. The back has more significant toning, looking as if it sat on some sort of grate for many years, and a few minor tape pulls from previous framing, but none of this is visible on the front. This poster will frame beautifully. A rare opportunity to obtain a highly desirable Velvet Underground/Andy Warhol poster. With Recordmeccas lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
