Our friends Doomtree have released their latest album "No Kings," just in time for their seventh annual Blowout concert at First Avenue. The whole crew is taking over 5 straight nights in the 7th Street Entry and 2 nights in the mainroom. With the help of friends like Brother Ali, Astronautalis, Sage Francis, Kill The Vultures, Andrew Broder, I Self Devine, Ice Rod, and even Hannibal Burress, the crew is really doing something special with these nights.
So with that in mind, we wanted to do something special for the poster. Wes Winship based his art on the "No Kings" album cover and concept, building up an ornate image of a crown made up of all of the show information - and for 7 consecutive nights with a zillion different guests, there is a LOT of show information - and then ghostbustering it out with a series of hand-painted, hand-inked, hand-splattered circle/slash details. After that, each poster had additional black ink painted and dripped on, making each print truly unique.
Have a look at some of the photos of Wes and crew working on some of the prints, available all this week at First Avenue and next week in our online store:
