Description
FD-6 Big Brother & Holding Company 1966 "Sin Dance" Family Dog Concert Poster. A first-printing San Francisco concert poster for Big Brother and the Holding Company, the Grass Roots and the Sons of Adam at the Avalon Ballroom on Friday and Saturday, April 29-30, 1966. Known as FD-6 in the Family Dog numbered series, this poster comes from the personal archives of Bob Cohen, the man who co-owned the Family Dog and ran it with Chet Helms from early 1966 until the firm's demise in late 1968. The poster was graphically designed by the legendary Wes Wilson. The fact that this poster's shows were canceled seems to phase nobody. "It's possible that no psychedelic poster has a greater mystique attached to it than ‘Sin Dance,'" states Eric King in his definitive psychedelic poster guide, now in its 10th printing and used by everyone. "That [the concerts were] canceled not only didn't detract from its mystique, it added to it. This may be the quintessential psychedelic poster. It has all the elements which drove the establishment crazy: sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll and vibrating colors. "This is one of the main reasons why, for a generation, the American art establishment refused to have anything to do with this art form. They considered it the sex-obsessed ravings of drug-addicted, filthy hippies. Now [in hindsight], no matter how naïve the counterculture... might have been about the consequences of immersing oneself in sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, these works are the most vibrantly alive and powerful graphic art of the 20th century." Measures 14" x 20" and grades to Near Mint condition. COAs from Bob Cohen and from Heritage Auctions.
