Our vintage concert postcards commemorate shows from Fillmore East, Fillmore West, Winterland and Avalon Ballroom.
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 postcard was only printed once before the concert. It measures 4 5/8" x 7".
There were also some pre-concert double-sized mailers printed that were conjoined with the BG165 image. They measure 7" x 9 1/4".
