 Original 1st printing 5&1/2 x 8&1/2" double-sided concert handbill for Big Brother & the Holding Company (featuring Janis Joplin) appearing with Quicksilver Messenger Service and the Universal Parking Lot (*not billed- late addition) in a benefit for the Lick Wilmerding School, held at the Avalon Ballroom in San Francisco, CA on 12/27/1966.
 Art by P. Kitchell, image is featured in the Art of Rock on page 106 (plate 2.17).
 Thin flat stock handbill is in good/decent (B to B/B-) condition; there are a couple of fairly pronounced thin bends criss-crossing the image area, along with a bit of light handling wear/creasing, a small tape stain/pull in the bottom center margin, a 1" tear in the lower right margin, a decent-sized tape pull on the reverse and a rough/hand-torn right margin (as issued), otherwise OK.
 ULTRA-trippy 1966 Avalon benefit handbill for an early "alternative" private school.
