Avalon Ballroom 8/3-6/67
This popular Family Dog poster was designed by Robert Fried for an August 1967 show at the Avalon Ballroom that featured the Charles Lloyd Quartet.
The original poster was printed on white index stock and measures approximately 14″ x 20″. The dots within the image and the lettering next to the Indian are printed in silver.
The second print poster was printed on white index stock and measures approximately 14″ x 20″. This printing eliminates the silver ink run, so the dots and lettering are white.
The postcard comes in three varieties, all of which measure approximately 5″ x 7″:
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 mechanically addressed and sent to people on the Family Dog mailing list.
