Original 1st printing 5&1/2 x 8&1/2" concert handbill for Andy Warhol's Exploding Plastic Inevitable, a multi-media show presented by the aforementioned pop-art icon Andy Warhol, featuring performances by the Velvet Underground and Nico ("Pop Girl of '66"), along with the Mothers of Invention (featuring Frank Zappa) and more, held at the Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco, CA from 5/27-29/1966.
Art by Wes Wilson, image is # 8 in the Bill Graham/Fillmore series, this is the double-sided PINK stock version (OHB-B in the Eric King guide, the reverse side is blank).
Thin flat stock handbill is in very good to excellent (B/B+ to B+) condition; there is a VERY thin diagonal/horizontal bend traversing the top of the image area (from just to the left of the first "p" of "Pop" to just to the right of "27"), along with a minor amount of handling wear (a few stray small pinch dings), a couple of VERY soft diagonal bends in the lower right corner and a nearly-invisible roll bend in he upper right margin, otherwise fine.
SUPERB-looking example of this early Fillmore handbill from the 1966 debut of the Velvet Underground/Andy Warhol E.P.I. scene in San Francisco.
