Big Brother & the Holding Company played for a dance in Campus Hall (now Crawford Hall) on Friday, September 27, 1968. Morning Glory was the opening band and lights were by Thomas Edison & Castle Lighting. Tickets were $3.50.  The New University called Big Brother “San Francisco’s only true heavies.”
