BG133 advertised four consecutive Fillmore West mid-week and weekend concerts. A triptych in design, Griffin used hand-drawn color plates to make 3-D images project from the background, and the frames of the panel appear to be insect legs. A collaboration between Griffin and Alton Kelley, the image's central figure may be the herald from Hell, a menacing image which contrasts with the bubble-infused, cartoon-style lettering of the side panels. This 1st printing poster, measuring 22 x 28 3/8, is on uncoated paper stock. It is in outstanding condition, with only a few (very) minor condition issues in the top and bottom right corners.
