Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
A collection of 52 flyers and handbills promoting various soft, folk, and alternative rock bands and music venues in California. The material dates from the 1980s to the 1990s and features acts such as 10,000 Maniacs, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Camper Yan Beethoven, The Roches, Red Kross, Terence Trent D'Arby, World Party, Chris Isaak, Lions & Ghosts, Sleestacks, Roller, Wednesday Week, and others. Many of the flyers list event information and pictures of the bands, but a few consist of a mix of different images thrown together. One flyer for the band Lions & Ghosts features a baby with various dancing people and the quotes: "Bizarre change makes people explode" and "Surgeon General's Warning: Drinking BEER now greatly reduces serious risks to your health."
