Our vintage concert postcards commemorate shows from Fillmore East, Fillmore West, Winterland and Avalon Ballroom.
The Fillmore West closed for two days at Christmas, 1970. Immediately following, on the 26th, husband and wife team Delaney and Bonnie appeared with Voices of East Harlem, a 20-voice gospel-soul group.
The only postcards known to exist measure 4 5/8" x 7" and were cut from the BG261/262 pre-concert double-sized mailer.
Barely out of high school when the psychedelic scene rocked San Francisco, Orr aspired to become a Fillmore poster artist. Hired in 1970 by Bill Graham's art director, Pat Hanks, many of his first posters featured detailed lettering on rich colorways and reflected the influence of artists Kelly, Mouse and Griffin. Orr's style evolved to include designs featuring female nudes and photographs combined with complex lettering and backgrounds. His posters are compelling artwork, a mixture of pure public relations and religious or political themes done in jewel-like tones.
