Much of this section is devoted to 1970s poster art advertising live music at the Armadillo World Headquarters, the Vulcan Gas Company, and the Soap Creek Saloon. These three Austin, Texas venues presented performers that included 13th Floor Elevators, Leo Kottke, Greasy Wheels, Joy of Cooking, It's a Beautiful Day, Bill Monroe & The Blue Grass Boys, Hoyt Axton, Dr. John, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Loudon Wainwright, Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen, Asleep at the Wheel, Tracy Nelson & Mother Earth, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Kinky Friedman & The Texas Jewboys, Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band, Boz Scaggs, and Bruce Springsteen, among others. Gilbert Shelton, Jim Franklin, Michael Priest, Guy Juke, and Ken Featherston were the primary poster artists for the three venues.

Also listed in Miscellaneous is the famous Grateful Dead poster that was banned by the Radio City Music Hall, and a Bill Graham Presents 1995 poster from the BGP series (BGP-116) that features the Grateful Dead and the Dave Matthews Band. The central image is the front of a Las Vegas hotel with “Grateful Dead” spanning the top in lights.
