Thanks to all of you who renewed your TRPS mem­ber­ships or signed up for the very first time online dur­ing the past few weeks. This will save you a whole bunch of time when you attend the Fes­ti­val of Rock Posters on Octo­ber 24 (although you are def­i­nitely wel­come to stop by the booth and say hello to Mark, Gale, and the rest of the TRPS gang!).

If you have not renewed your mem­ber­ship or signed up yet, there’s still time to do so before the show. Your $30 mem­ber­ship sup­ports our work year-round, sub­scribes you to our newslet­ter, and enti­tles you to your choice of a T-shirt by some of the best poster artists in the busi­ness (the image at top-center is by Art Chantry; the one at top-right is by Alexan­dra Fis­cher) or a copy of the “Amer­i­can Arti­fact” 2-DVD set.

To sign up or renew, visit TRPS.org today!

Poster for 2015 Fes­ti­val of Rock Posters by Car­olyn Ferris.

Well, it’s that time of year again, time to announce the stel­lar ros­ter of artists and deal­ers who will be attend­ing the 2015 TRPS Fes­ti­val of Rock Posters on Sat­ur­day Octo­ber 24 at the Hall of Flow­ers in Golden Gate Park.

As any­one who’s attended any of our recent TRPS Fes­ti­val events can attest, this show seems to get bet­ter every year. We always say it’s the biggest rock poster event of its kind any­where, and a must for any poster fan or collector.

And so, with­out fur­ther ado…

What To Know About the Door
We open the doors at 10:00 am and the show runs until 6:00 pm.  Our recent admis­sion pro­to­cols will be in effect. For you new­bies, here’s how it works.

* 10:00 – 11:00 Admis­sion dur­ing the first hour is $20 for non-TRPS mem­bers. Admis­sion for mem­bers is $5 as usual, and your mem­ber­ship needs to be cur­rent. Please bring your card to show at the door. If your mem­ber­ship is expired or you’re a non­mem­ber, you pay the full admis­sion price at the door and we refund you the $15 dif­fer­ence from the $30 mem­ber­ship cost if you renew or join at the TRPS table. We encour­age you to make sure your mem­ber­ship is cur­rent before the show to avoid the has­sle. It’s eas­ier than ever to join or renew at trps.org.
* 11:00 – 3:00 Admis­sion is $10 for non-TRPS mem­bers and $5 for mem­bers, just like always.
* 3:00 – 6:00 Admis­sion is FREE to all. If being part of the early rush isn’t impor­tant to you, heck just come later when things have set­tled down a bit and get in for nothing—you can’t beat that. Bring your friends and family!

Mem­ber­ship Pre­mi­ums
When you join TRPS, you have a range of mem­ber­ship pre­mi­ums to choose from. In addi­tion to T-shirts by Emek, David Singer, Alton Kel­ley, Alexan­dra Fis­cher, Art Chantry, and oth­ers, we’ve also got a lim­ited num­ber of the rock-poster doc­u­men­tary “Amer­i­can Arti­fact.” This 2-DVD set includes the full orig­i­nal movie, plus a sec­ond DVD of out­takes and extras. Every poster fan should own a copy of this, so here’s your oppor­tu­nity to grab a copy if you don’t already have one (“Amer­i­can Arti­fact” also makes a great gift!).

Where Is It Again?
The Hall of Flow­ers (aka, the Old County Fair Build­ing) is just inside Golden Gate Park, near the cor­ner of Ninth and Lincoln.

Dennis Loren to Rock Dearborn Music

On September 20, 2015, in News, by Ben Marks

Jagged Edge Poster VxF

On Sep­tem­ber 26, 2015, those who live in the greater Detroit area will want to head on over to Dear­born Music on Michi­gan Avenue. That’s the day Den­nis Loren will be there, from 1 to 9 pm, sign­ing posters and just hang­ing out. Den­nis tells us that Dear­born Music is a great, neigh­bor­hood record store, about the same size of Amoeba Records in Berke­ley. Den­nis has been going to Dear­born Music since 1958 (they opened in 1956), and says he spent a good chunk of his paper-route money there. More recently, Dear­born Music has been sell­ing Dennis’s posters, as well as ones by Carl Lun­dren and Gary Grimshaw. Check it out!
