Original 1st printing 7 x 10&1/4" concert flyer/large handbill for Big Brother & the Holding Company (featuring Janis Joplin)* appearing with H.P. Lovecraft and the Clara Ward Singers at the Carousel Ballroom in San Francisco, CA from 5/24-26/1968.
 Art by Crazy Arab, image is featured in the Art of Rock book on page 180 (plate 2.164). This example is UNMARKED (*see below)
 Medium-thin flat index stock flyer is in near mint (A-/B+) condition; aside from a touch of moisture warp/handling wear and a a tiny bit of wear in the top lkeft corner tip, it is a GORGEOUS example of this very strange looking Carousel Ballroom artifact.
*Big Brother backed out of the show and a number of posters and handbills were re-distributed with the band's name crossed out with different colored magic markers. They were replaced on the bill by Mad River (thanks to Ross for the info!)
