1966 Andy Warhols presents The Plastic Inevitable Show with the Velvet Underground Site Poster

1966 Andy Warhols presents The Plastic Inevitable Show with the Velvet Underground Site Poster

There are few instances in which the worlds of art, music and entertainment collide more powerfully than in this amazing relic from the beginning of the psychadelic movement. Offered is an exceedingly rare cardboard site poster, with artwork by renown Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein, for Andy Warhol's presentation of the Plastic Inevitable Show at the Trip on Sunset in May of 1966. This show is one of the most historic events of the pychadelic movement, and may very well have ushered in the genesis of punk. Bringing down fourteen of his Factory regulars for a cornucopia of Pop Culture, including movies, light shows and "living theatre", Warhol also brought along his new band, The Velvet Underground with Lou Reed and their new German singer Nico. Los Angeles local Frank Zappa was booked as the opening act, and on opening night celebrities abounded including Ryan O'Neal, Papa John Philips and Cher who commented "the Velvet's music would replace nothing, except perhaps suicide." Another face in the crowd was UCLA film student Jim Morrison, who more than likely took many a mental note on the pandemonium he witnessed. Zappa and the Mothers of Invention were cheered loudly, while the Velvet Underground was greeted with a chorus of boos. The reviews were abysmal and on the third night the sheriff’s office shut the club down for disturbing the peace. In addition to listing the names of Warhol, the Velvet Underground and Nico, the poster features a Roy Lichtenstein Newsweek cover and Warhols famous Campbell Soup Kids. One of the most important posters of the 1960s. Featured in the seminal work "The Art of Rock." Near Mint, 14 x 22 inches.
