Fillmore Auditorium 4/21-23/67

Howlin' Wolf at Fillmore Auditorium 4/21-23/67 by Wes Wilson

© Bill Graham Archives, LLC. All Rights Reserved

Catalog No. BG-60

TThis poster was created by Wes Wilson for a 1967 show with Howlin’ Wolf, Big Brother & The Holding Company, and Harbinger Complex. The central image is an illustration of a nude woman with long hair and one hand extended palm up toward the viewer. Many people think of psychedelic posters as announcing concerts by mostly white acts. Bill Graham actually made a practice of featuring the leading African-American artists of that time—especially blues singers. This concert featured Chester Arthur Burnett (Howlin’ Wolf), who was very popular with the mostly white hippie audiences who frequented The Fillmore. Upon closer inspection, you can see that the name was misspelled “Howling Wolf.”

The original poster was printed on white index stock and measures approximately 14″ x 23¾″.

The postcard comes in three varieties, all of which measure approximately 4½″ x 8″:

The Type A card has a “place stamp here” reverse.

The Type B card has a bulk rate permit on the back.

The Type C card has a bulk rate permit on the back, and was addressed and sent to people on the mailing list.
