A superb, early poster from Seattle's underground punk scene, featuring the visage of Chinas Comidas-founder Cynthia Genser presented a la Warhol's portrait of Edie Sedgwick. The band included Rich Riggins, Dog Midtskog, and Mark and Brock Wheaton. The Feelings were Rob Vasquez, Geoff Cade, Greg Ragan and Dean Helgeson. The venue was the Ethnic Cultural Center in Seattle's University District, and the words "Rock Show" are presented as if the unknowing public might be confused by the foreign nature of the band names and venue. Featured in Instant Litter Concert Posters from Seattle Punk Culture by Art Chantry, p. 7, as well as Clark Humphrey's Loser, p. 36.
