Canned Heat Vulcan Gas Company Concert Poster VG21 (1968) Austin, Texas' original "hippie hangout" was the Vulcan Gas Company. Located in a run-down area of downtown, on Congress Street, it thrived as a scene for far-out music and light shows from 1967 until finally closing in 1970. Poster from this venue were produced in small quantities, with no reprintings like their San Francisco counterparts. Here's a typically large (21.5" x 27.5") poster advertising a Canned Heat show, with Vulcan regulars the Conqueroo and Shiva's Head Band supporting. Underground comix artist Gilbert Shelton provided the cooly psychedelic images and trippy lettering. The poster has a few tack holes and tears, the worst being a 1.5" rip along the left side, but overall ranks a solid VG. Of the estimated 150 copies produced of this poster, it's doubtful many have survived in better condition.
