Santa Venetia Armory Posters are among my favorite of the sixites for shows produced by Al and Ralph Pepe. Why? because they are unique I guess. The posters for the dances were straight from the fifties for all practable purposes with cardboard boxing style formats, all produced by Tilghman Press. This was unusual because almost all the groups were psychedelic influenced bands, the Bay Areas best, that were playing at the Fillmore and Avalon. Not many SVA posters survived since they were non-psychedelic and really not considered worthy to dress-up the walls of Hippies and Music Fans at the time. Today however, I consider them among the best of the sixties posters.
