This Original 2005 Poster was produced to promote an evening of spoken word poetry by one of the greatest female post-punk era artists of all time: Lydia Lunch at Portland's Doug Fir Lounge. Lunch has recorded and performed as a spoken word artist for many years collaborating with other artists like Exene Cervenka and Henry Rollins as well as hosting a regular performance night called "The Unhappy Hour" at the Parlour Club in Santa Monica. This original printing poster was designed by pacific northwest artist Mike King and has never before been seen in any public auction with third party certification and grading! Many collectors believe that posters graded 8.5 by CGC represent the best value in the marketplace today. Read our blog dated 1/31/18 to learn why demand is currently skyrocketing.
