Victor Moscoso designed this advertisement, known as Hippie Santa Claus. The central image is a Santa Claus-like character with small horns, surrounded by a circle filled with small triangles. At the time of this concert, the Family Dog was using radio ads promising a Hippie Santa Claus, who intoned Ho Ho Ho, in a very hip voice, thus the name of the poster. Moscoso referred to this image as The Satanic Santa, because of the horns but in Central European tradition there is an evil character (Krampus) who brings bad things to children who are misbehaving. Note: if Krampus visits it is customary to offer him a glass of schnapps. But, upon further review, this Santa looks rather supremely happy, stoned perhaps, and so maybe we could agree on the name, Mischievous Santa.
