Not listed in that link: My old friend Thomas Scott at Eye Noise has an amazing assortment of his rock gig posters HERE. Looking through these is like flipping through a scrapbook of my college years in Orlando (especially the early ones).

Thanks jonson. Whenever I get around to building my Rock'n'Roll rumpus room I know what I will be decorating the walls with.

assuming the Mrs allows me, grumble grumble

I frequent Bittbox, and I haven't seen this one. A big thank you!

some more goodies:
American Poster Institute
Burlesque Design
Spike Press

Let this become the poster motherload!
Once the Mrs. and I purchase a house, our office will be lined with framed concert posters (mostly mine from the live venue at which I work.) These links will help.

Brian Mercer, for all your sludgey stoner doom gig poster needs.

Which link is yours, jonson? I'd like to see your artwork.

also, I see it's a fresh Bittbox link...guess I should be more on top of the RSS.

Here's one I love... The Small Stakes. Lots of great posters for Bay Area (and elsewhere) concerts.

Seattle Show Posters. It's not his - it's ImJustRick's, who posted the first comment.

I logged in just to fav this post. Awesome collection. Thanks.

blastrid, none of these are mine - I wish I had any kind of talent at all - the "self-link included" comment was made by ImJustRick, in reference to Seattle Show Posters, a site he runs and which he linked to in his first comment above.

Thank you.

I included myself among some giants.

There's a lot more variety in styles than I was expecting. For a while it seemed like every time I looked at modern rock poster sites the art was either a third rate Kozik or, even worse, a bad attempt at replicating Coop's style.

I cant wait to spend more time going through these sites, but already these Beulah and Spoon posters impressed me.

Surprised that the poster collection at Wolfgang's Vault hasn't been mentioned. Unfathomably deep and lots of rarities.

Holy crap!
My Elefant poster is on that "here's an interesting list" page.

Maybe I dont suck so bad.

Bob Masse has been doing rock posters since the 1960s. I didn't notice him on the linked article or in the already-posted comments.

Picked up this one at Coachella by Emek, the pictures don't really do it justice, it looks amazing with the metallic inks and highlights.
Wish I was half as talented as these guys, there's some amazing work. I saw a great display of posters here at the Experience Music Project in Seattle, I think it was a temporary exhibit though.
