Avalon Ballroom 7/26-28/68
Designed by Casey Simpson, this image advertised a series of Family Dog shows at the Avalon Ballroom that featured Quicksilver Messenger Service, Howlin' Wolf and Dan Hicks and his Hot Licks.
The original poster was printed on uncoated index stock and measures approximately 14″ x 21″.
The postcard comes in three varieties, all of which measure approximately 4⅝″ x 6″:
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.
