This is an original Bill Graham Program advertising a run of shows at the legendary Fillmore East in New York City, featuring Frank Zappa And The Mothers, Byrds, and more on 6/5-9/71.

Recording of the Mothers Live Album occurred during the June 5th and 6th dates of this run. The hilarious concept album centered around the infamous "Mud Shark" incident and featured vocalists Mark Volman and Howard Kayla from The Turtles. Truly an incredible work of art.

The Fillmore East was Bill Graham's contribution to the New York City music scene in the late 1960s. The venue operated from March 1968 to June 1971. During that period, the Fillmore East hosted some of the most memorable shows of the era. Unlike the West Coast Fillmore, the East Coast counterpart did not use many posters to promote each show. Instead, the promoter produced these vintage "Playbill" style programs, featuring beautiful artwork, album advertisements, and bios/photos of the band's upcoming shows at the venue.
