Offered is the original, blank-backed large handbill created to promote a pair of concerts, presented by Laumac at the Santa Venetia Armory in Marin County on July 8 & 9, 1966. Dubbed "A Rock & Roll Happening", these seminal shows featured performances by the Grateful Dead, Quicksilver Messenger Service and Sopwith Camel. While not mentioned on the poster, the GD Online Archive and Dead Base confirm that the Grateful Dead did indeed play these gigs. This scarce, psychedelic handbill was designed by Frazer, who is credited at lower right. The o ffered example, printed on index stock, measures approx.9 1/2" x 12" and is in Very Good condition, with a tack hole at top center, a set of staple holes in the "R" of Rock & the 2nd "L" of Roll, a hole at lower left in the border perimeter, a small tear in the bottom edge and overall age toning (see photo). That said, this is the first time I have ever seen this rare artifact from this small, Bay Area venue.
