We are excited to offer this Vulcan Gas Company poster, cataloged VG-17 for the FIRST time in our auction! This stunning issue by artist Robert Rush advertised The Conqueroo, American Eagle Squadron, Shiva's Head Band, Lost and Found at the famed Austin, Texas venue on March 15th, 1968.

Austin Texas has a rich musical tradition dating back to the 1930s. Often spoken of in the same breath as Nashville and New Orleans Austin is considered an American sweet spot of musical collaboration and innovation. During the 1960s a small group of students began promoting Psychedelic and Blues concerts in the Austin area. They were originally known as the Electric Grandmother. Later they became the Vulcan Gas Company and eventually opened a venue under the same name.

The Vulcan Gas Co. was responsible for a wonderful series of concert posters that are very scarce and beautiful. Very few of these posters exist in ANY condition today and the few that have surfaced over the years have been mostly restored. This copy is in amazing condition and presents an amazing collecting opportunity for anyone in this hobby!
