My first gig prints in a while. They were surprisingly not that hard to get. Especially on Sunday. Panic merch and RR security did a great job managing the line, keeping people from buying 2, etc.

Although Spusta is probably the artist I collect the most of, followed by Welker, I like the Emek the most. It's just so clean. Spusta's is super detailed and beautiful, but the colors are a little too dark and kind of hide the image. The Welker has amazing colors and detail, but seems a little too busy. Emek's has great colors, and is super clean and detailed.

I agree, geez. The green of the band name is thick and textured, and the GID is cool as well. D'Andrea and Sleep continue to be a sweet combination.
I always defer to someone who's wearing a beater, regardless of what else he's wearing.

Thanks for sharing this. I've never seen his stuff before. Just checked out his website and he's got some killer pieces for cheap. An 11x14 OG for $50, and some full size silkscreens for $20-50.

Any PJ Harvey fan around here, the first part of the european tour is almost done and I haven't seen any gig poster, I have seen twice this new show and it is great. For the Let England Shake tour, I found just the poster of Sperry...

they are selling this at multiple stops along the tour possibly when there is no specific gig poster. It's also the design they used on one of the merch shirts. While it was no doubt designed by someone who was artistic, I don't think it was designed by an "artist". (trying to not be insulting)

Went to the Boca Raton show, no city specific print, only this. I like it too, looks very nice in person. #420/800 to boot.
