perkinsSend perkins a message :   Or, they were intended as promotion, then the show sold out & they became souvenirs/merch by default.   2006-08-15 12:20:59
PosterChildSend PosterChild a message :   I hear and understand what all of you are saying. I didn't mean to discredit the poster and I realize the definition of a gigposter is very broad, limitless in fact. But to me, one of the prime objectives of the poster is to bring people to the show being advertised. You can at least acknowledge there's an inherent conflict in advertising an event the viewer cannot attend.
So, these are intended at souveniers/merch, which is fine.

lil_tuffySend lil_tuffy a message :   why is this an issue every time it happens?
people need to come to turns that the definition of a 'gig poster' has greatly expanded from being something that is hung up on the street weeks ahead of the show.
And that's not that new of a concept.. I was looking through a relix from '78 and there were numerous ads selling posters from shows that had already happened.

danstilesSend danstiles a message :   I've been asked to do posters for shows that are "sold out" of all the advance tickets. But there are still some at the door the night of the show. Hanging posters that say sold out makes people feel the need to find tickets so they can be cool too.   2006-08-14 16:20:03

The Fresh PrintsSend The Fresh Prints a message :   start a band called "sold out" and piss everyone off... so now does a "gig poster" have to be on paper??   2006-08-14 15:40:06
DKNGSend DKNG a message :   Look at it as Concert Memorabilia if that is easier to grasp. Either way the art won't change.   2006-08-14 15:39:00
perkinsSend perkins a message :   Boadicea needs to get a clue. I've gotten approval & started on posters for big shows, then right before it goes to print I get a call saying the show has sold out. The promoter/venue has already committed to the poster and included it in the promotion budget at that point. A handful of those times I was asked to put "Sold Out" on the poster?
So why is that lame? It's an accurate visual record of that particular gig, and was delivered prior to the show for promotion, just as promised.

El Negro Magnifico!Send El Negro Magnifico! a message :   "Of course I get consent from both the management from the Troubadour and the band. The Troub gets consent from the bands, and that is why we give posters to the band as a thanks for playing. The reason a mojority of these posters say "sold out" on them, is because these are the only posters that have enough budget for it."
Okay, cool.

weathermakerSend weathermaker a message :   did she get hired by the club with the permission from the band....yeos. if there's something weird it's that the troub wants to keep it's image up by ordering posters for mostly sold out shows. that's not her problem, she's making posters that document the gig. lot's of folks do that.   2006-08-14 14:18:33
DKNGSend DKNG a message :   If it makes it easier to understand, I am "asked" to show that a concert is sold out on a poster (its business). This is still an advertisement, because many of the bands that play at the Troub end up playing again. I'ts a quick reminder to viewers that shows fill up fast for such a small venue.
Sorry for the confusion, but don't worry these poster ARE gig posters.

SpaceMonkeySend SpaceMonkey a message :   "In my case these posters are used as gifts to the band/portfolio... and well practice." I love the Troubadour despite the everpresent smell of urine -yet nobody at the Troubadour knows how to answer a phone or email and thus give consent-so unless you got consent directly from the band or management it's not a gigposter. And this isn't Giftposters.com or GiftPortfolio.com!   2006-08-14 11:10:31

Oh, they were the coolest works of art, untill the market got flooded by amateurs who did not abide by the rules and got the whole scene wiped out...

scrojoSend scrojo a message :   poster child* from a clubs point of view it's allways good to promote the fact that shows are selling out. people tend to buy more tickets to future dates if they kno that there is the distinct possibility of a sell-out. i've had this happen many times but....... i've usually designed a second banner to go over the poster, not design the "sold out" into the poster itself.   2006-08-14 09:20:26
PosterChildSend PosterChild a message :   "Maybe it's because the show is like, sold out."
yeah, so I gathered. But doesn't making posters for a sold out show, like, run contrary to the nature of advertising/postering?
Like I said, I like the poster. I'm just curious about the bit of info on the poster that tells the viewer it's sold out. I've never seen that on a gigposter before.
