    Grateful Dead "Hippie Santa Claus" Avalon Ballroom Concert Poster, FD-40 (Family Dog, 1966). Here's a great, single-printing Dead poster, featuring a rather evil-looking Kris Kringle, for the band's 1966 Christmas Eve shows at the Avalon, featuring Steve Miller and Moby Grape. In fact, artist Victor Moscoso, of Zap Comix fame, referred to him as the "Satanic Santa", based on the European tradition of a "bad Santa" who visits naughty boys & girls each December 25th. "Ho ho ho" indeed! You'll be all smiles if your bid snags this NM copy, though. Approximate size is 14 3/8" x 19 15/16".
