March 11, 1978

This street poster advertises a “No Wave” rock concert to raise money to print the third issue of X Magazine.  Some of the groups that performed — the Contortions and DNA –  were later recorded by Brian Eno for the seminal “No New York” album.  This poster is not to be confused with the similar-looking, smaller version that was featured as the centerfold in the third issue of X Magazine and thanked the bands for their help. The item for sale here is the original; it is larger, printed on better paper,  and exceedingly rare. Poster available from 98 Bowery.
