DescriptionTalking Heads, XTC 1978 Amsterdam Concert Poster. A thin-paper poster for a killer two-band bill at Amsterdam's beloved Paradiso venue, featuring Talking Heads (months away from the release of their second album, More Songs About Buildings and Food) and a young XTC (who would release their scorching debut, White Music, only a few days after this show). At the time, this was still considered punk, as the phrase new wave had yet to be commonly accepted. For those attracted to this show, it was a powder keg of energy that had nothing to do with disco or dinosaur rock. Measures 24" x 17". In Very Good Plus condition with various spots of wear. COA from Heritage Auctions.
