The Blues Bash, featuring two different bills splitting six days evenly, was represented in Conklin's symmetrical, twin satyr poster. The satyr figure is unusual; the business end here is human, a reversal of the usual construction. Ike and Tina Turner made an appearance at the Fillmore West at this Bash.
The handbill measures 4 5/8" x 6 15/16" and displays a calendar of upcoming Bill Graham events on the reverse. It was printed before the concert.
There were also some pre-concert double-sized mailers printed that were conjoined with the BG127 image (see BG127/128). They measure 4 5/8" x 14 1/4".
Concert promoters created handbill versions of many of their posters and used them as sidewalk handouts and dashboard fliers to promote upcoming shows. Many of the handbills are double-sided, with poster art on one side and a calendar of upcoming shows on the other. These handbills represent an important element of rock concert history because they were hands-on marketing tools that united promoter and patron.
