Presented by Bill Graham at the Fillmore East in New York City on May 10, 1968, this mesmerizing artwork by David Byrd, beckons audiences to immerse themselves in the electrifying atmosphere! His attention to detail, using a drop-bow compass for the circles and meticulously rendering Hendrix's iconic afro. Although Sly and the Family Stone were the opening act, they are not mentioned on the handbill. We included this poster in our lineup because of its fantastic design and because Hendrix, a Seattle native, holds a special place in our hometown's history!

David Byrd, born in 1941, is an American graphic artist, designer, illustrator, and painter renowned for his significant contributions to the visual landscape of rock and roll music and popular culture. He earned a BFA in Painting and Design and an MFA in Painting and Printmaking from the Boston Museum School and Carnegie-Mellon University.

His versatility extended beyond rock posters to include stage musicals on Broadway, where his designs for productions like Follies and Jesus Christ Superstar became iconic. His move to Los Angeles saw him contributing his artistic talents to projects for Van Halen and Warner Bros.
