1970s show flyers

As noted when we looked at 12 punk flyers from the ’80s…some of us were just born in the wrong decade. While a surprising amount of the bands below are still touring in one form or another (such as the Avengers, The Damned, Buzzcocks, Wire, and now Black Flag), it was well over 30 years ago when punk rock was just bursting forth as a subculture, and there was no better time to be part of the movement and see the groups who were there at the starting line.

Check out these dozen flyers, and allow yourself to dream of what it would have been like to see The Clash, The Damned, Johnny Thunders and The Heartbreakers, and the Sex Pistols all on the same bill.
