The macabre thespian raged against a grievous affront: the Grateful Dead, pointedly absent from the billing, were busted in New Orleans for marijuana possession. The fine print at the top of the poster indicated that this was a benefit concert for the band.

Our vintage concert handbills feature performances from the Fillmore, Fillmore East, Winterland, the Avalon Ballroom and more.

Print Variations

The red and orange handbill was only printed once before the concert. It measures 4 5/8" x 7".

A variant handbill exists (see BG222-B) that omits the red and orange ink and displays brownish gray instead. It was also printed before the concert and measures 4 5/8" x 7".

About Randy Tuten

Randy Tuten is the only poster artist whose work spans five decades of design for The Fillmore. The 23 year-old San Francisco native was hired by Bill Graham in January, 1969, and their mutual taste for traditional, readable design style led to a long-lasting work relationship. Although influenced by the compositions of "Fillmore Five" artists Mouse, Kelley and Griffin, Tuten avoided "... Heavy meaning in my posters." Tuten's style reflected his skill as a draftsman, and his designs evolved into an eclectic mix of graphic imagery, lettering and photographs.
