    Alice In Chains/Son of Man 1989 Central Seattle Concert Poster. An 8 ½" x 14" concert poster printed on thin white paper featuring a young Alice in Chains as the support act for Son of Man at the Central in Seattle.

    The Central likes to bill itself as "Seattle's oldest saloon," having been a café, post office, employment hall, and a brothel in various times. But for bands in Seattle (and its surrounding areas), the Central was the place where many bands cut their teeth. It was here where a band that started hours away in the logging town of Aberdeen played to less than a dozen people, but Bruce Pavitt from Sub Pop thought his label should do a single with them. The band was Nirvana.

    For Alice in Chains, they were about to release their debut album, Facelift, in the summer of 1990. Recording was about to begin not long after this show at the Central. With their name borrowed from a hair metal band frontman Layne Staley sang for (Alice N' Chains), this new band had a strong sense of melody with their blues/heavy rock feel. Headliner Son of Man was a local favorite and prospects of going further than being local famous. Sadly, a fire that destroyed their equipment was a major setback and they eventually broke up. (They reunited at the Central in 2014.)

    In Near Mint condition with very light handing wear. COA from Heritage Auctions.
