About four months ago I scanned a picture of a postcard advertising a show with the Grateful Dead and the New Riders of the Purple Sage at a short-lived club in San Rafael called the Euphoria. I attended that show and managed to hang onto the card for all these years. Here's a link to that Show & Tell:
Here are postcards for the shows that preceded and followed that one. I attended both. July of 1970 was a fun month.
The first show featured Big Brother and the Holding Company as the headliner, but Janis Joplin had left the band by then. Nick Gravenites was the lead singer that night, and while I always liked him, Janis was a tough act to follow. Don't remember much about A.B. Skhy, but Joy of Cooking was always a favorite. Randy Tuten did the art on this one, I believe.
The second card was for a Youngbloods show. We saw them many times when we were kids. I especially liked Banana's playing, but Young had the voice. Art on this one is by Robert Fried.
Note the back of each card: I like how they gave people a buck off a $3.50 ticket if you showed a Richmond Bridge receipt (an attempt to lure the East Bay crowd to Marin).
