Tonight's Primus Poster from San Francisco by Zoltron and Chuck Sperry

Details from Zoltron on the poster for tonight's Primus show:

I reached out to the prolific and heavyweight San Francisco Rock Poster Artist, Chuck Sperry about collaborating on a poster for the end of the year Primus shows at the Warfield on Dec 30th and 31st.
Chuck and I have worked together many times over the years, but usually he's the one inviting me to do posters for his coveted SF, Goldenvoice Poster Series - which has been created and curated in the rich history of San Francisco's 1960s rock poster tradition for the Avalon Ballroom, where Chuck and other artists design and print unique posters for events at the Regency Ballroom and the Warfield Theatre.

It just so happens that the Primus Poster Series, currently landing on poster #83, and The Goldvoice Series, currently at poster # 171, are literally merging on New Years at the two Warfield Primus shows.

Over the past 20+ years in SF, every Primus or Claypool related New years performance has a theme. This year's theme is "Frankenstein's Masquerade Ball." The idea was for each of us to do an artist's homage to Frankenstein. Each poster would be inspired by a different historic artist - and by working with the same color palette and printing the posters at the same time, we would ensure a consistent overall theme.

So without further talk... Here's my Warhol "Inspired" Bride of Frankenstein...
(at least it started out with warhol in mind...)

The poster was hand printed by Chuck Sperry at Hangar 18 in Oakland. 5 colors with a metallic undercoat. Zoltron plans tentative poster release date of Friday jan 7 at a random time at
