    Grass Roots/ Big Brother/ Sons Of Adam "Sin Dance" Avalon Concert Poster FD-6 (Family Dog, 1966). Chet Helm's Family Dog had been putting on shows for only about two and a half months by the time of this wild poster. Headliners the Grass Roots were yet to begin their long string of hits (beginning with "Where Were You When I Needed You" some two months later), and second billed act Sons of Adam are best known today for singer/songwriter Randy Holden (of later Blue Cheer fame). Opening the show was Chet's own band, Big Brother and the Holding Company, before they hooked up with singer Janis Joplin! Wes Wilson designed this impressive poster, which found a very inventive way to print information with lettering in the form of a snake! Wow, man! This uncommon beauty had no second printing because the show never happened! It was cancelled, big reason that it is a very hard poster to find. Measures: 14" x 20"
    Condition: VG++. There is "FD-6-OP1" written in pencil on back bottom left corner.
