 Original 1st printing 19 x 25" concert poster for the 9/21-23/1967 Grand Opening week of shows at Straight Theater in San Francisco, CA. Performers listed include: Quicksilver Messenger Service, Mount Rushmore, Mother Earth and the New Salvation Army Band (9/21), Country Joe & the Fish, the Charlatans, Blue Cheer and Freedom Highway (9/22) and the Grateful Dead, Big Brother & the Holding Company (with Janis Joplin), Wildflower and Phoenix (9/23).

 Art by Frank Melton, image is featured in the Art of Rock book on page 200 (plate 2.220).

 Medium-thick glossy stock poster is in decent (B/B-) condition; a moderate amount of edge wear (scattered tack/pin holes, small edge tears, nicks, etc.), a 2" horizontal tear in the right center margin, a small wedge pull tear in the left center margin, a number of scattered handling dings, a few stray pin-prick surface stains and a bit of moisture warp to the paper, otherwise fine.

 Conditional issues aside, it is still a very charming example of the Grand Opening poster of this late-'60's Haight-Ashbury institution. Virtually all of the biggest early San Francisco bands played, except for Jefferson Airplane (they were on tour).
