Thursday Throwback: Fillmore East Concert Ephemera

Posted on: April 12th, 2012 at 10:33 am by

Last month, the ghost of neighborhood’s past took us on a tour of the legendary Fillmore East at 105 Second Avenue. The subsequent response was crazy, with people writing in from all corners of the internets to share memories experienced at the iconic Lower East Side rock venue. One such reader was Michael Daily, who boasted seeing some ten shows in 1970, and was kind enough to share his personal collection of concert programs and ticket stubs.

This dude held onto the ephemera for forty years and let us republish some of it in the gallery below. Note the programs for the farewell shows.

Anyone out there have photos from the old Fillmore shows? Drop a line.
