    I have both of the Emek Coachella posters and they got me interested in collecting other posters from shows I attend. Everyone knows what they look like, so here are my others.



    Anyone else collect posters from shows? Post up what you have. As a related sidenote, if anyone could get me the Raconteurs poster from 10/1, I'd pay a good number for it

    I have the black version of this poster...I love it! I've been buying tour posters for a few years now. I love the art. I just bought a poster for Okkervil River w/sea wolf at the fonda theater...I'll try to post all the posters I have. I usually get them mounted onto a black foam backing and have them coated for protection then up onto the walls with them!

    and yeah I get posters for shows I've been to.

    I used to collect a lot more than I do now. It's an expensive hobby.

    this one i bought for $200 and now sells for $1k...so i'd say it was a sound investment.

    I love that arcade fire poster. I usually buy them at the show so they are stil $15 to $30 at that point

    If you think buying them is pricy, don't ask for a price to frame them (properly at least). Thankfully, I get big discounts now from my framer.

    I really like both of those MMJ ones, even if I'm not a huge fan of their music. All of the recent Raconteurs ones look great too.

    Do you (everyone that's replied) get them all framed? MarkO, you must be running out of wall space or have a waayy bigger apartment than me.

    Yeah, the framing for the one's I have bought is always 4-5 times what the work cost alone.

    As some of you already know... I have been a big collector of show posters for quite a while now. I know there is a post somewhere on this, but I don't think it was under a "show poster" title - so cool, I've aquired a few new ones in the past few months.

    Here are a few that I own:

    correct...well...sorta...they have a classifieds section where people sell their own stuff. Any poster entry will usually have the artist's website there and most sell on their sites

    Thanks, I have more - just haven't gotten them all in the computer yet. Needless to say, I buy more than just the shows I go to.

    I usually choose posters by artist and designer primarily. For example I have tons of Arcade Fire posters, which I like both band and designer (Burlesque), other times I by stuff from design houses that consistently do work I gravitate to. Aesthetic Apparatus, Small Stakes, Farm Barn, Patent Pending, Decoder Ring, Crosshair, Delicious, Heads of State, Little Friends of Printmaking, Animal Rummy, Florafana, (off the top of my head)

    Here are some others I have in storage.

    I wonder if there will be a poster for the Asobi Seksu Halloween show and if there is, will any actually be sold to muggles. They tend to have really interesting ones, so I want one.

    Ha - my wife says too much.

    I give myself a monthly "hobby budget" - which includes video games, dvds, cds, posters, camera stuff, concerts, and magazines and books.

    Since my son was born, I slowed waaaaay down. But for example, last month I spent about $100 (on 2 Vampire Weekend ones, The Bloc party one and 2 Swell Seasons)... the 2 months before, I didn't buy any.

    In the past I'd usually get 20-30 a year. So figure that's about $400-500 annually in posters, I'm now about half that since last year.

    Wow thats crazy. At least theyre pretty affordable. 5 posters for $100 isnt bad at all. I hate that framing costs so much though =/
