Avett Brothers Posters On Sale Tomorrow
I was just at the South Bend show at the end of January and forgot to get my concert poster right away when I got there. I remembered right as David Mayfield started playing and went to buy one, but they were sold out. I was so bummed about this, but then I was given Justin Helton’s card for Status Sterigraph. Justin designs the concert posters for the Avett Brothers and many other artists and events. He has designed for Bonnaroo, Phish, Old Crow Medicine Show, Yonder Mountain String Band, Wilco, The Black Keys- just to name a few. They are really beautiful art that seems to be indiciative of the location of the concert or something related to the band-the South Bend poster has the wedding rings I am assuming because they opened with January Wedding. All of the posters are screen prints and are printed using silk screen techniques and are printed by hand.
I have really enjoyed looking back through all the posters of some shows that I have been to and some I wish I had gone to. There were a few that I wish weren’t sold out. We are buying a few and adding to our collection and even our kids’ room. Yes, we might be a little over the top, but hey the kids are huge fans too. Think about where you could squeeze a poster or two!
Posters go on sale randomly throughout the day tomorrow (Wednesday, February 23, 2011). Avett Brothers posters will be available for
Kalamazoo, MI, South Bend, IN , Washington D.C. and Wilkes Barre, PA.
