legit question, regardless of how ignorant it may sound. i'm just getting into his work and i think the stuff he's done for widespread panic, umphrey's, dark star is insanely amazing but i have zero interest in that genre of music. is there a known Sperry trait that he loves the jam bands or is he contracted to do all the posters for Goldenvoice and these just happen to be the bands that are performing or... i must know. i must!

I don't think chuck likes hippie fudge.

but, maybe I'm just making that up.

Coldsore are you still in the bay area? Does Goldenvoice promote most of the concerts up there? Not the ones you would necessarily attend but the bigger stuff.

It is very obvious......................hippie bands are the best!












Just joking.....it is just my opinion that hippie bands are the best....at least Widespread Panic and their hard rock hippie band stuff.....oh whatever, not really sure why Sperry's prints for hippie bands are the best, but I cannot argue with the statement!

I am still out here.

Goldenvoice has a pretty large presence, but yes, like you said, mostly to events that I don't attend.

I think mogwai comes closest but still not quite as good as most of the hippie band stuff.
