This is the first appearance of this VERY RARE, Salt Lake City Punk Rock poster in a PAE auction! It was produced on ultra-thin newsprint paper to promote the popular Punk band Black Flag appearing at the Utah State Fairgrounds Arena in Salt Lake City on May 22nd, 1985. The Minute Men were in support.

The double-sided poster features Black Flag’s legendary “4 Bars” logo designed by artist Raymond Pettibon. His artwork became well known in the late seventies in the southern California punk rock scene when he began creating album art for groups on SST Records, owned and operated by his brother Greg Ginn. In 1977 Ginn founded the influential punk rock band Black Flag. Pettibon even played bass in the band during their early formative years. His artwork appeared on posters album covers and T-shirts for Black Flag through the early 1980s and he became a legend in the Los Angeles punk rock scene.

This poster was produced as a 4-page advertisement poster for the gig. Page One is laid out with Black Flag’s name in large letters above the other information in small typeset lettering with an illustration of a youth sitting down with a big bucket of paint and a paintbrush smiling. Page Two and Three make up an even larger poster, with almost the same layout of the smaller poster on the frontside (page one), though with a larger illustration of someone holding a chair in front of him to contain an angry youth who is yelling “Listen to maggot, I’m either going to the gig or I’ll break your face, YOU CHOOSE”. Page Four fills out the entire page with the iconic Black Flag logo in bold, thick lettering. It’s very likely you won’t see another copy of this mega-scarce concert poster anytime soon, anywhere!

Condition: Printed on thin newsprint. Creases from being folded, handling, toning.
