Between the 4th and 10th of December 2011, Minneapolis' own almighty Doomtree crew fully stomped seven new holes into First Avenue and 7th Street Entry. After 5 straight sold out nights in the Entry featuring dozens of local and national acts, the crew united for 2 sold out nights in the mainroom. That's right - one whole f*cking week!
This year's blowout coincided with the release of Doomtree's best album yet, "No Kings." This huge album and huge week at First Avenue truly deserve a huge poster, and Wes Winship did indeed deliver. Here is his homage to the album's artwork and its concept that no man should be higher than another. Wes filled up a giant, ornate crown with all of the handwritten concert info (and that's a LOT of info) and then he and Ben LaFond ghostbustered it outta here. Each print is screenprinted and handpainted / inked / spraypainted / splattered and no two are alike!
