May - 13th Floor Elevators Concert Poster Love Street 1968 [ Back to Gallery ]
 
 
An awesome, brilliant day-glow, cardboard poster for the 13th Floor Elevators performing "now: live in person" (better than dead - that's for sure) at Love Street in Houston, Texas. Mmmm, did you notice the spelling of Street, maybe the artist was a little bit high? Personally, I think this is one of the best psychedelic posters of the entire sixties and have coveted it from the first time I ever saw the poster.

An extremely rare Texas psychedelic poster with only 3 known copies to exist, so finding one or finding someone to part with their poster is more than difficult. The 13th Floor Elevators were a terrific Texas psychedelic rock band lead by singer Roky Erickson (a story in itself) and the band was a regular at the Vulcan Gas Company located in Austin, Texas which produced some of the best of psychedelic posters and art of the sixties.

The 13th Floor Elevator's first album has become a classic and recently released is a limited 10 CD box set of all their music along with a book, poster and handbills - this poster is pictured in both the ccompanying album art and information book. I know I have said it before but, vintage rock n' roll posters just don't get much better than this one!
