    Straight Theatre Concert Poster (1968) One of the "hippest" clubs in San Francisco in the late 1960s was the Straight Theatre, located at the corner of Haight and Cole streets. Not just a place to see a concert, the Straight had movie nights, theatre nights, even dance classes. During the day, it was a rehearsal studio for Big Brother and the Holding Company, with Janis Joplin. Offered here is a rare poster from this historic location; many of the posters were printed in quantities of 600 or less. This is about 10% of what Bill Graham was printing of his posters at the time. The groups featured on this poster include Initial Shock, Allmen Joy, Indian Head Band, and Phoenix. This poster measures 17" x 23" and grades VG due to some creases and tears along the edges.
