The Coastal Post - January, 1998
Concert Cancelled Due To Poster
A free concert by San Francisco-based rap alternative band
the Marginal Prophets that was scheduled for Tam High on November
20 was cancelled after school administrators took a close look
at the posters used to promote the event. They depicted the two
lead rappers begging on a filthy city sidewalk littered with
garbage that included a wine bottle, a condom and a hypodermic
needle. Also visible, upon close inspection, was the tip of the
penis of one of the characters peeking out from underneath the
skirt he is wearing.
The poster was drawn by Keith Knight, the cartoonist behind
the K Chronicles, a weekly strip seen in the Pacific Sun and
Examiner. The posters were brought to the attention of the principal
by a custodian.
