PLEASE GO TO PART ONE to see the main part of this video. This is just the final three minutes. Thanks!
A historic and early S.F. Mime Troupe concert poster from late 1965 to raise funds for the Troupe’s legal defense. This was a Bill Graham production – his first ever at the Fillmore – even though his name does not appear on the placard.
Here’s exactly what the poster says:
S.F. Mime Troupe Appeal II
For Continued Artistic Freedom In The Parks
(Then in huge red letters) DANCE-CONCERT
–with– Jefferson Airplane, John Handy Quintet, Sam Thomas and the Gentlemen’s Band, The Mystery Trend, The Great Society, “And Many Other Friends.”
Friday, December 10

Donations – $1.50

To read a lot more about this fun, rare piece of early S.F. rock memorabilia, please refer to the big write-up I did for part one of this two-part video presentation. Or, of course, just… watch the videos!
And please remember, I PAY THE VERY BEST PRICES, PERIOD, for this poster (I don’t have one) and many other vintage concert posters from 1920-1970. Check out my hobby web site for details: www.postercentral.com. Thanks very much!
Peace & Love,
