A cool vintage poster from Professor Poster:

A departure from the usual style of poster that the very talented artist, (and former wife of Bill Graham) Bonnie MacLean offers up for today’s “Poster From The Past”. The poster’s central image is of a human face with an American flag waving just in front of it. There is also part of a hand, a rooster and a figure playing a guitar. At the bottom, a small face peers out from behind a flower. There are birds as well as flowers also throughout this collage of pastel colors that smoothly blend together on a black background.

It was 46 years ago on this day back in 1967, an INCREDIBLE dance/concert took place with The Byrds, The Electric Flag and BB King, playing at The Fillmore Auditorium.. what a line-up! The following two nights the venue switched over to the Winterland Arena just a couple of blocks away. Light show performed by Holy See! This is BG Fillmore poster number #96 in the old series and was printed just one time.
