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).

    I would like to use a few of your rock poster scans on an article I'm writing about the Euphoria and Pepperland in San Rafael. May I have your permission?

    Hi Marilyn.
    Who is the article for? Glad to hear someone is writing about this stuff.

    It's about Litchfield's Bermuda Palms for the San Rafael PATCH. Intrigued by the map on the back of the card.

    Great! Please post a link here when your article is up. Litchfield's was a blast. Shows on Monday nights were only a buck. Clover, Stoneground, Commander Cody. Great time to be in high school.....

    I liked the joy of cooking and went twice to a place across GG bridge in or around San Rafael, There were two big white giant speakers by stage and remember seeing a young man laying practically inside one of the speakers! close to freeway! I can not remem ber name? Euphoria does not ring a bell!

    Hi toracat:
    It was the same place, but it was called Pepperland by that point. There's a black-and-white photo of the speakers you are talking about half-way down this page:
