This is the FIRST CGC graded example of this handbill to appear in our auction and it's in sparkling 9.8 quality condition! The Western Front was a short lived and relatively obscure rock club that opened in June of 1967 in San Francisco’s Tenderloin district. The Western Front wasn't around long but still produced a handful of interesting posters and handbills. This handbill was designed by a well known underground comix artist named John Thompson for a pair of October 1967 performances featuring Morning Glory. Thompson was a frequent contributor to "Yellow Dog" Comix along with several other poster artists like Crumb Griffin and Irons. Native American themes and images were popular motifs among residents of the Haight and this handbill clearly illustrates that reverence.
