Original 1st printing/final state version (with silver-ink overprint) 5 x 7" concert handbill for the "Fire Dance" benefit (for poster artist Alton Kelley, whose studio had burned down) featuring the Steve Miller Band, the Charlatans and Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks appearing together at the Carousel Ballroom in San Francisco, CA on 6/12/1968 (*show was rescheduled from 5/8/1968 and was originally supposed to have included Jefferson Airplane, who dropped out).

 Art by Stanley Mouse & Alton Kelley, image (an uncut proof sheet) is featured in the Art of Rock book on page 182 (plate 2.173).

 Medium-thick flat index stock handbill is in near mint (A-) condition; just a couple of tiny corner-tip bumps and a trace of silver ink streaking across "June", otherwise fine.

Very sharp example of the "Fire Dance" handbill.
