Description

Rare ultra-early 1976 mini poster for the Ramones in Cambridge, MA—one of their first shows outside NYC

Extremely rare original 8.5 x 13.75 handbill/flyer for the Ramones at The Club in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on February 26, 1976, billing them as "Special Guest Stars from New York City," supporting Boston's own Third Rail. After making a name for themselves in New York City's underground punk scene—notably as regulars at CBGB throughout 1974 and 1975—the Ramones embarked on their first American tour in 1976, hitting the Boston metro area first, with shows in Nashua, Cambridge, and Brockton at the end of February. The concert at The Club in Cambridge marked just the third time they had ever played outside of New York—they had played one gig in Waterbury, Connecticut, in 1975, and performed in Nashua, New Hampshire, on the previous night. The poster also advertises an early performance of the Tuff Darts (led by Robert Gordon), a fellow frequent CBGB headliner. In very good to fine condition, with minor loss and short tears along the edges.
