Grateful Dead – 1968 “Acid Dropper” Carousel Ballroom Concert Poster

A rare concert poster advertising The Grateful Dead, Chuck Berry and Curley Cook’s Hurdy Gurdy Band at San Francisco’s Carousel Ballroom in March, 1968.  It is popularly known as “Acid Dropper” for obvious reasons.

This highly collectible poster was designed by Steven Catron, and is reproduced in the definitive reference book The Art of Rock as plate 2.163.   It measures 15 7/8” x 22 1/8” and is in excellent condition.  There is a small printing imperfection to the right of the middle “acid drop,” some faint toning to the left edge (not affecting the image,) soft and minor corner creasing, faint handling and on the back a tiny stain and number written in colored pencil. It will frame beautifully.

The only example we’ve had of this classic.
