 Original 1st printing 14 x 15&3/4" concert/event Poster for "The Conspiracy Stomp", a benefit to raise money to cover legal costs for the Chicago Eight (Abbie Hoffman, Bobby Seale, Jerry Rubin, Rennie Davis, David Dellinger, John Froines, Tom Hayden and Lee Weiner), held at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago, IL on 11/28/1969.

 Acts/speakers listed include: Abbie Hoffman, Paul Krassner, Bob Gibson, the Fabulous Hypnotics, Jeff Carp Group, Chad Mitchell, the cast of "Hair", Hugh Romney (AKA Wavy Gravy, host and Master of Ceremonies), Johnny Kaye, Phil Ochs, Siver Apples, Calvin's Walla-Walla Basics and "Fifty Live Turkeys"(!) 

 Art by the one and only R. Crumb, thick flat index stock poster is in good/decent (B to B/B-) condition; there are tack holes in the upper left/right corners, along with a 1" square surface pull in the lower right corner (just to the left of the fist), a thin vertical bend with a bit of scuffing extending from the top center margin down into the middle of the image area, a series of tiny pin-prick surface spots (tape residue) in the lower left corner, a moderate degree of surface scuffing/wear, light toning and a set of decent-sized tape pulls (and a large masking tape remnant) on the reverse side, otherwise OK... definitely a bit on the used side, but still quite presentable.

 ULTRA-COOL 1969 benefit poster from the legendary Chicago ballroom, this one features a great R. Crumb design and a wildly eclectic lineup. Read more about the event (and the fifty live turkeys)  HERE:
