Alice Cooper (The Spiders) – 1968 Lake Berryessa Bowl Concert Handbill
A rare handbill advertising the ‘Grand Opening’ of the Lake Berryessa Bowl, in Winters California, listing a number of upcoming shows by groups including one featuring The Spiders, at just about the time they changed their name to Alice Cooper.
The Lake Berryessa Bowl, 18 miles from Napa, opened with three days of concerts, featuring rock groups including H.P. Lovecraft, Loading Zone, Transmatic Express, and on June 1 The Spiders. The Spiders were, of course, the group that changed their name to Alice Cooper, and became world famous. This show took place exactly as that name change was happening, during a run of West Coast shows–in fact they had already played at least one show with their new name. Three weeks later, as Alice Cooper, they opened for Ten Years After at the Whisky-A-Go-Go in Hollywood.
The handbill measures 7 1/4″ x 11″ and is in mint condition, with psychedelic artwork is by Carson-Morris. A scarce Alice Cooper collectible.
