Artist Conklin restrained himself to a vaguely classical reference on this garish della Robia wreath of flowers, milky breasts and entangled bodies with the New Year's babe emerging from the Dead's mascot. The 1969 New Year's Eve concert, featuring perennial performers the Grateful Dead, Quicksilver Messenger Service, It's A Beautiful Day and Santana, was held at Winterland.
The Vault's retro and vintage pin collection ranges from round, metal, campaign-style mementos of specific concerts, events and political statements to square tokens of promotional album imagery. Many bear the likeness of a performer, album cover or the salient graphic from a poster that advertised an event. Vintage pins from as early as 1966 tout the coolest shows and hottest rockers, while our retro designs bring the greatest icons of image and sound to the lapel and knapsack.
