This site is a cream dream! I cannot begin to express the level of utter bitchin' radicalness that is available to you on GigPosters, you're just going to have to go there right now and check it out for yourself. Make sure you search for your favorite band, or if you're more prone to loving a particular designer you can search by either of those criteria. This site is massive, and it has been the touchstone for revitalizing the rock poster movement. Not only is it a storehouse of the cool, it's also an online community of artists, designers and fans allowing them to scope out each other's work, post comments or contact each other directly. Whether you're down with some Kozik or Sheperd Fairey, or Crown Dozen's buddies Gun Sho, Serigraphie Populaire, Little Friends of Printmaking and Peter Karpick there is some hot hot shit going up every day on GigPosters.... In addition to providing a support group and ready-made network to budding artists, the site currently hosts 27,275 poster images. If you see something you like, you can email the artist responsible and see if they have any left for sale. That way you duck the cost of a secondary market and give your money straight to the artist. This is also a great way to get gig posters from your favorite bands even if they've been playing in cities far far away from your hometown. I reccomend looking up every one of the artists I've mentioned above by searching under "designer". You'll be astounded. It's my personal guarantee. I have noticed that the site gets lots of traffic, so if you're having a hard time pulling it up, just try back a little later. It's worth the wait, and worth the effort.



Adam I dont know if you know this but this is a huge coincident that you've reviewed gig posters. Houston McIntyre has some art work on this and he just told me yesturday to check it out. Look up criminal designs to see some of his work.
