The postcard for the Grateful Dead and Mother Earth at The Family Dog in Denver (1601 West Evans Street), the rock club that presented many psychedelic bands during the short period it was open in 1967-1968. These concerts on September 22 & 23, 1967 occurred during the first month the club was open.
Chet Helms was manager of Big Brother and the Holding Company, which famously added Janis Joplin as its singer for a period. Helms formed Family Dog Productions, and began producing concerts at the Fillmore Auditorium (SF) alongside a young Bill Graham. Helms and Family Dog hired a group of young artists to design the graphics for their posters and handbills, which became the standard by which all psychedelic concert posters would be measured.
