 Original 1st printing 4 x 7&1/8" postcard-backed concert handbill for Big Brother & the Holding Company (featuring Janis Joplin) appearing with the MC5 and Pink Peech Mob on 3/1/1968 and with Tiffany Shade and Family Dumptruck on 3/2/1968, both shows held at the Grande Ballroom in Detroit, MI.

 Art by Gary Grimshaw with a photo by Irving Penn, image is # 71 in the Russ Gibb Presents/Grande series and is featured in the Art of Rock book on page 299 (plate 3.141). 

 Medium-thin flat index stock postcard is in near mint to excellent (A-/B+ to B+) condition; aside from a few tiny tape pulls on the reverse, an almost-invisible handling ding or two and a tiny pin-prick sized stain in the upper left corner, this example is essentially as clean as they come.

 A GORGEOUS example of one of Grimshaw's finest early-'68 efforts, featuring Irving Penn's iconic "Look Magazine" photo of Janis and the boys.
