In 1971 the Cockettes, a San Francisco hippy drag troupe, brought their show to the Anderson which turned out to be a disaster for them. From the website NoeHill, a photo of the marquee and a hand drawn playbill for Pearls Over Shanghai and their film Tricia’s Wedding both of which failed to wow the crowds:

Grateful Dead played a legendary gig here on 11-23-1970. A Hells Angels benefit with the New Riders. Concert was preceded by a huge rumble out front when the Breed gang from Philly tried to bum rush the place. Angels had their HQ around the corner on 3rd St. Still do.
