 ITEM DESCRIPTION

 Original 1st printing 14&1/8 x 20" concert poster for the Sir Douglas Quintet (featuring Doug Sahm) appearing with Big Brother & the Holding Company (featuring Janis Joplin) and "a Special Surprize Visit"* at the Avalon Ballroom in San Francisco, CA on 10/15-16/1966. (*this was the 1st anniversary of the Dr. Strange dance)

 Art by Stanley Mouse (who also signed the poster in pencil) and Alton Kelley with a photo by Edward Steichen (Gloria Swanson, 1924), image is # 30 in the Family Dog/Avalon series.

 Medium vellum stock poster is in absolutely STUNNING near mint (A-) condition; just a stray surface indentation or two and a couple of tiny pin-prick ink sprinkles (likely from the press), along with a couple of ultra-tiny thin bends in the lower right margin/edge, otherwise this example is essentially as crisp as they come.

 The "Surprize Visit"* alluded to above was by none other than the 13th Floor Elevators, making this FD anniversary celebration an all-Texan-fronted affair... not to mention the ad-hoc jam fronted by Jerry Garcia and Pigpen on the 16th (as mentioned in "Mojo Navigator"*).
