Just wanted to throw this out to you all.

BURLESQUE OF NORTH AMERICA (a very ccool design shop in Minny) has just released their very limited set of 2007 Arcade Fire Tour Posters. The 2005 ones SOLD OUT mucho quickly. These new ones went on sale about an hour ago, so if you want a set, act sorta fast. The bottom left one is the one for LA.

They are selling them as sets only. (4 posters $30 a poster)

Sweet.

The quality of the screenprinting is amazing. Drop dead gorgeous. I snagged my favorite from the 2005 set see below) a few months back (it cost me a pretty penny, but you never see them for sale).

they are getting bombarded with orders I'm sure.

I think I like the 2007 NYC one the best (the horizontal one)

I also just noticed they did the poster for Bonnaroo this year. Coachella should get these guys to do one for Coachella 2008, that would be very cool.

I'm really digging that Interpol one.

Oh man that Flaming Lips one is my favorite.

C DUB YA

The Lips one kills. That is local (here in C-bus Ohio) I know those guys (Mike and Drew) from Farm Barn Art. Co.

They also rock - as it were.

hey sexecutioner,

the LA one (only one of them) is up on ebay - its rather more ($59.99) when purchased alone - but it's cheaper than the set price. 10 minutes to go in auction.

Did he get banned? About time. We can always revisit him through his many ebay ticket auctions in the future I'm sure.

And to think he had been looking to "trade" that poster for another one, what a 2faced p.o.s. and you guys thought I was horrible over my tiny lil "scalping" infraction. Those posters are amazing CDub. I have my AF one that I got in Berkeley, its beautiful.

That and he just had it coming in general. Funny thing is most of us could kick his ass in general he is a little shrimp who wears glasses.

Hey CDUB, being that you have had experience with purchasing from Burlesque in the past (I think), do you happen to know how long it takes them to ship out posters? I am eagerly waiting for mine, I have the frames picked out and everything.

C DUB YA

they usually ship within the week - I got an email Friday saying mine was going out (only because I phoned my order in), should be here tomorrow or Wednesday if I had to guess.

There might be a little longer delay due to the number of sets going out at the same time.

damn...that one you posted went for $122

C DUB YA
07-31-2007, 12:45 PM
Ouch, that's up there.

I saw the last set (5 posters) go for a thousand a few months ago - there were way less of those made though (250 each).

C DUB, Burlesque also stated that they would be collaborating with Arcade Fire on their next tour with LCD Soundsystem. This time it will supposedly be shirts, posters, sweaters, the whole nine yards, Is this the first time that Burlesque will be doing something of that magnitude with a band?

Yes I think so.

I think they did a poster shirt combo deal for PEEPING TOM last year, but other than that, the only thing they've done is multiple poster deals for short tours, (PELICAN 06, ARCADE FIRE 05). I'm curious to see how that all pans out, could be very cool.

Some design shops do this regularly of course.

Decoder Ring Design for example has done TONS of stuff for Modest Mouse and they even got to do the new album packages and merch this year.

http://www.thedecoderring.com/

WILCO has a bunch of their stuff done by the Heads of State (fyi - they don't update their site very often)

http://www.theheadsofstate.com/

Patent Pending has done many posters for Death Cab and The Shins, even though DC spreads the love, their best known and most collected posters come from Patent Pending (which is made up of the Sub Pop creative guys) You've seen their work I'm sure. The OC, the new Patton Oswalt cd, Shins stufff etc...)

http://www.patentpendingdesign.com

The best example of a band working with one design house though is PEARL JAM. Jeff's (bassist) brother is one of the principals at AMES BROS DESIGN and they have always done their posters primarily, and also some merch from time to time. God, they must have hundreds of posters now. They are always very cool.

Chicago is the worst out of the set

Hey - A Friend of mine is selling his LA and Chicago posters (He's in Philly) and he doesn't want to ebay it - he only wants $60 for LA, and $40 for Chicago (he bought them off a poster dealer hence the different prices) also the numbers do not match, but they are perfect, if anyone wants either, just PM me.

FYI - he paid $55 (LA) and $35 (Chicago) and $55 for (Canada) respectively, but only wants to keep the Canada one now. He's not looking to make any money really.
