Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band
Crawford Hall on 28 Oct 68:
Rick Griffin Poster

Oh, how we long for the warped Technicolor days of Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band.
For an original art-rock ensemble, this Rick Griffin-designed concert poster promoting a 1968 show at Crawford Hall in Irvine, California is a perfect visual testament to the wondrous, whacked out world of the Captain. Griffin was arguably the most successful and best known poster artist of the psychedelic age, and emblazoned here on this concert poster are some signature Griffin images???a heart, wings, and an eyeball, cast in a surreal mold with pulsating colors of the rainbow, a befitting accompaniment for the maniacal music of this band.
