Show posters bridge together two of my favorite things: Art and Music. They are shout outs to both the band and concert goer. They give a respectful nod and an insider’s wink to the venue, the city, a song or a lyric. The best gig posters (IMHO) are entire stories told through a single image. They crystallize the concert in an everlasting, lighter-raising, visual encore… (where Freebird plays unironically on repeat).
