    Walked in at 6:05... ran up to the 100 level and was about 10th in line. Within 2 more minutes the line was over 50 deep with maybe 25 posters in stock at that booth but every booth was the same situation. Just missed a foil by 2 people. The poster is even more beautiful in person.

    To add... strictly enforcing 1 per person. See many with multiples but they're couples or part of a group.

    I remember lining up hours before doors at popular venues to ensure I got a poster. None of this strolling in after gates are open stuff.

    Shoulda bought N2 Mohegan. Literal Kafkaesque bugman at a slot machine, Whalers reference, New Haven Apizza, and even a reference to that weird trio of symbols graffitied everywhere in the state for some reason.

    I wonder if my parents nabbed a poster tonight. They were in really early. But I think theyíve determined that they have too many as it is.

    Poster is beautiful. The show was not. Wish the two could’ve worked in tandem a bit better

    Re: 2021 Poster Discussion

    Last night was the great poster debacle!! As I was walking into the venue, I saw 3 guys walking out with 5 posters each!!! (6:27pm) got in and only in the 100 sections did they have posters left. Got on the line and people were getting 2 each. I was next to the register and I see them take the last one off the wall. Sold out!!!! All by 640pm. I could blame by wife cause she could not find her Vax card and it took 10 min to find it on her phone. I managed to get one but that shit pisses me off. I would say 3 out of 4 people were flipping them

    Iíve had really good luck on Amazon from a company called Art to Frames. My two SPAC EADS look really nice in them. Granted I donít spend a fortune typically on my framing like some other people do in the poster groups.

    My 2018 SPAC Eads isnít matted but it has a really nice gold accent around the border which gives it that look. My 2017 is just plain black. I can get some pictures for you after work today if youíre interested.

    Amazon has frames of all custom sizes. I use Craig Frames for all DMB posters. Quality product. They donít seem to have a 12x36 size but I just quickly glanced. Worst case, about 50 other brands have that size. If you have prime, some as quick as same day.

    Re: 2021 Poster Discussion

    AmericanFrame.com has all kinds of options. Great frames, UV anti glare plexiglass, archival mats and boards. Pricey but worthwhile to protect a nice piece of art. Framing up my 12 x 36 VA Beach 2014 poster ran just under 200 bucks, but it won't fade from sunlight or have cardboard backing bleed into it.
    Just my 2 cents.

    Make a thread in the Poster forum. This thread isn't for buy/sell/trade.

    Wow. How fast did you move? They were seemingly gone quicker than I could copy/paste my CC info and autofill shipping.

    Well I have ordered from him before so I kind of new the layout. I knew not to use the paypal option. It is way too slow. The main thing is to be calm. Most people get all excited and type the wrong button or something. I will sell one of them. Not sure which

    I managed to get one too. Opted for the regular one since I thought Iíd have a better chance assuming everyone would go for the foil one. Just insane how fast they all went. Was kicking myself for not spending $250 on one the night of the show on eBay considering what theyíre going for. I havenít gotten a show poster in a long time as I havenít been thrilled with the designs, but this one was too good to pass up. Gonna get mine framed with the set list I got along with my stub and probably a pic and drumstick I got at other shows.

    That is very cool. I was going to go for the regular just to get my money back for buying one at the show but said what the hell. I just got lucky. Think I will keep the foil. My wife does not like it but oh well lol. Would be cool if someone here got #34, #40 or #41 posters. In a few years these posters in command a lot of money

    Re: 2021 Poster Discussion

    Was traveling and missed out on Slater's MSG N1 as well...sigh...

    Quick question to anyone in the know...

    Why are the artist print runs so small?

    They almost always sell out, so it would be an obvious boost if they sold more. They have to know that they'd sell a lot more prints, especially for DMB and other artists. While I completely assume it's part of the contract, why would a band do that to another creator and why agree to it if you are the creator? Putting a limit on how the work could benefit the creator seems antithetical to the process...
