New York: Danceteria, 1983. 5 9/16 x 7 1/2" postcard invitation, offset printed.
The invitation to the birthday party for the influential booker and music promoter, featuring an open bar and "Tapes of Ruth's Favorite Bands!" Polsky was hugely influential in bringing post-punk bands to wider attention in the US, especially in the UK. It was Polsky who booked the first, cancelled Joy Division tour, and contributed photography to First & Last & Always LP by Sisters of Mercy. Her career was cut short when she was run over by a runaway cab on the steps of the Limelight.
Very good with a short crease and some minor discoloration. Item #26270
