Vintage Dead Kennedys "Showbox" Patriotic Productions Flyer
Punk hardcore band Dead Kennedys formed in 1978. They were a political band, using singer Jello Biafra's satirical and humorous lyrics to expose various problems both in their home state of California and abroad. They released four LPs during their time together, all on their own label Alternative Tentacles. The records became canon within punk, and outside they became extremely controversial. So much so, in fact, that they were sued by the state of California.They broke up only in 1986. They notably reformed without Jello Biafra on vocals after Jello lost a lawsuit from previous members. This original Dead Kennedys poster, in excellent condition with corner pinholes that have created small tears, is from their show at Seattle's Showbox.
