Our vintage concert handbills feature performances from the Fillmore, Fillmore East, Winterland, the Avalon Ballroom and more.
BG165 marked the triumphant return of Janis Joplin to San Francisco. Joplin's personality transcended the confines of Big Brother & the Holding Co., and, on her way to a successful if brief solo career, she became one of the first superstars to emerge from California's counter-culture. Bill Graham didn't care for this Tuten poster because he couldn't "... read my &$%@ poster!"
The handbill measures 4 5/8" x 7" and displays a calendar of upcoming Bill Graham events on the reverse. It was printed before the concert.
There were also some pre-concert double-sized mailers printed that were conjoined with the BG164 image. They measure 7" x 9 1/4".
