Not listed on the poster (but did perform); Country Joe McDonald (with and without the Fish), the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, John Sebastian and Sha-Na-Na.
Medium-thin glossy stock poster is in GORGEOUS to near mint (A-/B+) condition; aside from a small print anomaly on the guitar neck (a minor stripping error) and a few ULTRA-light soft handling dings/tiny pin-prick surface marks hiding within the image area, this one is just as just about as bright/clean as they come.
An absolutely STUNNING 1st-printing example of this ICONIC 1960's poster!
