This amazing looking, original Armadillo New Years Eve 1976 poster is in museum quality condition with no nicks, cuts, tears or pinholes! It features Too Smooth, Paul Ray & the Cobras (with a very young Stevie Ray Vaughan!) and the Wommack Brothers. The Armadillo opened in Austin just after the closing of the Vulcan Gas Company. It went on to become the premiere venue in that musically rich city from 1970-1980. This legendary club offered an incredibly eclectic range of performers in its 10 year tenure. The posters from these shows represent one of the greatest collections of poster art available anywhere. 

 

Demand for Armadillo posters is currently at an all time high, and we see this as just the early days in a long trend. This can be attributed to several reasons including scarcity, historical significance as ground zero in the Texas psychedelic scene and the recently published book on the venue, "Armadillo World Headquarters - A Memoir" by Eddie Wilson with Jesse Sublett, and forward by Dave Marsh. Read our blog dated 2/12/18 to learn more!
