Died Young Stayed Pretty

15 Aug

Anyone who knows me knows that I love rock posters. I have a hard time actually not purchasing one when they’re available at shows. It’s sort of like the rock t-shirt thing I guess. Except I hang these on my walls and get to “ooo” and “ahhh” at them on a daily basis.

Apparently there are other people (besides those freaks over on who actually dig this stuff too. I am not alone!

Died Young Stayed Pretty is a new documentary about the fine world of rock poster creation. These artists work hard and it’s pretty amazing some of the stuff they come up with.

“Outside of their own circle, they’re virtually unknown. But within their ranks they make up an army of bareknuckle brawlers, publicly arguing the aesthetic merits of octopus imagery and hairy 70s porn stars. They’ve created their own visual language for describing the spotty underbelly of western civilization and they’re not shy about throwing it in the face of polite society. Along the way, they manage to create posters that are strikingly obscene, unflinchingly blasphemous and often quite beautiful.”
