We're total gig poster geeks here, as you may already know.  Writing to artists to see if they'd like to sell in our shop is, for us, like writing fan mail.  It's always a little clumsy, and a little gushy, but we're sincere and more often than not, the designer gives in.  We're so lucky like that.

Punchgut's punk flyer collage style hooks you, but it's his illustration style that really draws you in - his "She Waits" art poster is an excellent example.  The "One Witness" poster he created in collaboration with The Hovering Object's Mark Brabant is a shop/customer favorite. You see these online, they look beautiful and then you get them in your hands and you can't breathe.

We have a wide array of his gig poster work - Sharon Jones, Lucero, Andrew Bird, The Soledad Brothers and a few absolutely gorgeous art prints. We love showing off his work, so take a little lunch break, come down, and we'll look through them together.
