Groovy Psychedelic Art - 60's Concert Posters Going, Going, Gone

The Chanel suits and Katie Holmes haircut may fool your colleagues, but outside the office, you're an old hippie at heart. Need to trip down memory lane? Only two days left to get your fill.

Leland Little Auctions has an online auction going on today and tomorrow of Vintage Psychedelic Concert Posters... and the bidding is going on now! This online only auction features a single-owner collection of 1960's San Francisco's Psychedelic Concert Poster's from the estate of a California art dealer. Hurry because all bids end tomorrow at 6:00pm! (Tuesday, March 31st)

Rock 'n' Roll Art History - Authentic psychedelic concert posters are all from the genre's heyday of 1966-1969. Psychedelic posters were characterized by swirling designs and colors, and a certain hip illegibility that often made reading the poster's information a fun challenge. Standard photographs usually weren't used on these posters; the musicians were visually rendered with either approximating artwork or not at all, another playful hallmark of the psychedelic concert poster.

In 1960s and 70s rock 'n' roll psychedelic posters revolutionized poster art worldwide and advertised the live music of legendary bands and performers at venues that included The Fillmore Auditorium, the Avalon Ballroom, and the Grande Ballroom.

Poster artists were inspired by the music. Bands like Jefferson Airplane, the Grateful Dead, Quicksilver Messenger Service-and performers like Janis and Jimi-set the bar high; add to that the purple haze of counterculture, acid tests, movement politics, war and peace, a gathering of tribes, a man on the moon. That was the palette from which psychedelic poster art emerged to shape popular culture.

Art critics, museum curators, and gallery owners have compared the posters created by Wes Wilson, Alton Kelley, Stanley Mouse, Rick Griffin, and Victor Moscoso, among others, to the Belle Époque period posters of Toulouse-Lautrec that have enjoyed outstanding popularity with art collectors worldwide. Like the posters of the Belle Époque, the psychedelic rock posters of the 60s and 70s are classic. They can be enjoyed individually, or investment-grade collections can be built around them.

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on
The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of 
The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about. 


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
