About half of my posters are at home; the other half are at school. These are some of the former.

The first photo is a White Stripes poster I picked up at Amoeba Records in LA for a 2003 concert in Arizona. I love the mix of Egyptian styles with the White Stripes aesthetic. Also sorta looks like plastic, which for some reason I like.

The second is a Smashing Pumpkins poster from their 2007 residency at the Fillmore, which was originally supposed to run for eight nights (July 15 - Aug 1) but was extended three extra nights. I was lucky enough to score tickets to the very last night with three friends, and we road-tripped up from LA to SF just to go. Even though the Pumpkins aren't the band they used to be, this was the best concert I've ever seen---two complete sets (one acoustic, one electric) with about 30 songs or so total, including some gems I thought I'd never hear live (like "Starla" and an amazingly re-arranged "Shame"). As with all Fillmore concerts, I got this poster after the show.

The Subways are an amazing band out of Britain. I think I stole this poster from the Troubador in LA when they played there a second time a couple years ago (which was unbelievable). This is from their "All or Nothing" album tour in 2008).

The last poster is also from Amoeba in LA, a promotional poster for the Vines' first album, "Highly Evolved" (2002, but I think I got this poster on the same night I got the White Stripes poster). The poster is a bit lazy (just the album cover plus text), but I love the band and the album artwork, so why not?

    The White Stripes poster is by Dennis Loren, and it was created for a show at a place called the Horus Club in Rome, Italy. The edition size is supposedly only 150. They come up on eBay rarely, but when they do they sell for anywhere from 100 to 150 bucks. You should take it to the upcoming Festival of Rock Posters and get Dennis to sign it for you.

    The Smashing Pumpkins you have is by Craig Howell. Cool, timely, image. It is, I believe, the more common of the two variations out there. It does not feature the 19th as one of the dates, even though the Pumpkins played a private show at the Fillmore on that night. A second printing has the 19th on it. There are probably fewer of those, but it's only slightly more sought after than yours.
