Jimi Hendrix – 1968 comic book handbill for Rhode Island show
This Jimi Hendrix mini comic book is one of the more odd "handbills" I've ever seen. It advertises the Jimi Hendrix concert November 27, 1968 at the Rhode Island Auditorium in Providence, RI (this show took place on Hendrix's 25th birthday, which was celebrated afterwards at New York's Cafe-A-Go-Go.) Hendrix had cancelled a previous date at this venue, and so this "comic" type ad alludes to the fact that people weren't quite sure he would show up. The first scan shows the comic intact; it measures 3.25" x 2.5". The other scan show the comic disassembled into 4 separate pages (I removed the staple very carefully and spread out the pages. I've heard of another copy being framed this way. It has since been reassembled.) The only copy I've ever had, and it's in beautiful mint condition.
