From the 21st to the 23rd of April 1967, influential American blues singer Chester Arthur Burnett, better known as Howlin’ Wolf, headlined San Francisco’s very own psychedelic rock paradise, the Fillmore Auditorium.

The booming voice and incredible musical abilities he possessed made him a firm fan favourite, but he wasn’t the only one to blow the audience away.

Big Brother & the Holding Company’s progressive style of instrumental rock gave lead singer Janis Joplin the perfect opportunity to showcase her transcendent vocals while American garage rock band Harbinger Complex, best remembered for their 1966 fuzz-punk classic “I Think I’m Down”, brought the show to a close.

Below you will find some live footage from the 60′s as well as the 1966 classic mentioned above!
