If there is a worse night of the week to see a gig than Wednesday I don't know what it is. Wednesday is hump day; three days of work have already tired you out, but you still have two more staring you down, so it's not always best to go all night. That said, the right show...
Poster by Guy Burwell Dear Josh Homme, Thanks for last night. Sincerely, Sam You’re probably asking yourself why I’m thanking Josh Homme, lead queen of the stone age, in a post about My Morning Jacket’s Radio City Music Hall show. That’s a perfectly reasonable question, but I think I’ve got a perfectly reasonable answer. The show on Friday night felt like a...
I had the chance to catch The Raconteurs this weekend with my buddy Dave from Earvolution. I was definitely psyched to see Jack White and co. again, but I must admit, when Dave said he had an extra ticket I was almost equally excited to see what Rob Jones had in store for the gig poster. I know I've...
Photo by flysi Summer in the city of New York can be a fickle, fickle mistress. Day after day of sweltering heat, tempered only sometimes by a blast of cold air in a crowded subway car. When that subway's A/C unit is busted you begin to understand what Dante was talking about. There is another side to summers in New York...
I was trolling through the recently uploaded posters on gigposters, waiting for something to jump out at me for this week's Print Tease, and surprisingly nothing did. Sure, there were some fine posters buried in there, but nothing grabbed me. So I decided to take this week to highlight an unbelievably cool ongoing series of movie posters...
I have a nasty habit of taking photographs without people in them. In fact, I prefer landscapes, plants, and especially buildings. Truth is, people can ruin pictures sometimes. Maybe one person isn't looking, or another closed their eyes. Some might see these imperfections as human, something to be lauded in photos as opposed to eradicated. ...
In Drymount! and Print Tease I've looked at artists and bands who have had long productive relationships. Pearl Jam and Ames Bros. have been working together for over 10 years; Rob Jones shapes the White Stripe's image almost as much as Jack White does. Another really fruitful combination has been indie-favorite The Arcade Fire and Minneapolis printing...
I was mulling a few options for Print Tease this week. Then gigposters had an update and I had a clear cut winner, Guy Burwell's poster for The Cure. I couldn't care less about the band, but I couldn't be more excited for this poster, I think this is the best print I've seen in a while. Every...
As I think I've discussed before, I often see gig poster artists split into two categories: Illustrators and Designers. This is, of course, an over-simplification; many illustrators have a great sense of design, and lots of designers can draw. However, when looking through the pages and pages of new arrivals on Gigposters every week, I frequently see...
By all accounts Spoon are a pretty good band to work with. That's probably why they've had a number of posters done for them -- a lot of really good posters. Everyone from Aesthetic Apparatus to Todd Slater to The Decoder Ring have tried their hand at the Spoon gig poster, but the evil eyes of this...
