San Francisco, 1972. The artist Todd Trexler was a close friend of Sebastian (a.k.a. Milton Miron ) the producer of the Nocturnal Dream Shows which brought midnight movies - "the most obscure and bizarre we can find" - to San Francisco's Palace Theater. On New Year's Eve 1969, Sebastian allowed the Cockettes to perform there for the first time, in exchange for free admission. They soon became mainstays of the Dream Shows, performing there regularly until they disbanded in early 1972. Trexler designed most of the announcements for the shows. The posters were designed to be folded and mailed, as most of these were, showing consequent light wear. 1. May 1970. Midnight Movies. Purple and white. 17 x 22. Not folded. Light edge stain. 2.
