Dave Matthews Band Noblesville Live Trax Poster

Occasionally Dave Matthews Band will release a limited variant gig poster to be paired with a new addition to their Live Trax recording series from their live shows. We were happy to hear that the band’s recent Noblesville, Indiana concert was one such show, so we’re excited to announce the rerelease of our Noblesville poster in a special limited metallic color variant. 

The new poster is an 18” x 24” three-color screen print on 10pt gold foil cover stock. Check out a few close-up photos of the finished prints below. You can view our initial concept sketch and a video covering our design process in our original blog post. The Dave Matthews Band Noblesville Live Trax poster is available in a very limited artist edition of 60 prints in the DKNG Store. Due to the limited nature, the sale is restricted to only one print per customer, and once the poster sells out it will not be available in the future.

Dave Matthews Band Boston, MA Poster

As Dave Matthews Band wraps up another year of touring, we were excited to take on another gig poster for the band, this time for their show in Boston, Massachusetts. We were inspired by a cold winter night on the Boston Harbor, lit by the famous Boston Light lighthouse, and we contained the whole scene in a classic camping lantern, complete with moths buzzing around the flame.  

The poster is an 18” x 24” three-color screen print on Neenah Paper Patriot Blue 100 lb cover stock. Check out a few close-up photos of the finished prints below, along with our initial concept sketch, and a video covering our design process.

Dave Matthews Band Noblesville, IN Poster

The Dave Matthews Band summer tour rolls on and we’re proud to introduce our second poster of the summer for their show in Noblesville, Indiana. Warm summer nights make us think of camping in the woods under the stars so we decided to bottle up the whole experience in a mason jar. 

The poster is an 18” x 24” three-color screen print on Cougar Natural 100 lb cover stock. Check out a few close-up photos of the finished prints below, along with our initial concept sketch, and a video covering our design process.

Dave Matthews Band Charlottesville Poster

It’s hard to believe, but Dave Matthews Band has been performing for 25 years, and we were honored to create the artwork for their 25th Anniversary show in Charlottesville, Virginia, where their career began. The design features the band’s original tour van in front of the John Paul Jones Arena, one of many Charlottesville venues that were home to the band’s early performances. 

Along with advertising for the show, the artwork is available as a limited edition poster. The poster is an 18” x 24” four-color screen print on French Kraft-Tone Index Off-White paper.

Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds Oakland Poster

This weekend, Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds performed at the historic Paramount Theatre in Oakland, California. We were inspired by the incredible mosaic facade of the theatre and created an illustrated version of the building with Dave and Tim standing in for the larger than life figures that tower above Broadway in Oakland.

The poster is a two color screen print on Autumn Hay Metallic paper. Check out a few closeup photos of the finished print below as well as our original concept sketch. The Dave and Tim Oakland poster will be released in the DKNG store on Monday, January 19, at a random time.

Dave Matthews Band at Berkeley’s Greek Theatre

It’s not too often that Dave Matthews Band visits our home state of California, so we’re excited to release our latest poster for the band for their show at the historic Greek Theatre, in Berkeley, CA, on August 22. Given the amount of road the band covers, we thought a custom DMB motorcycle in a shop surrounded by tools and music gear would be a fitting image.

The poster is a four-color screen print on Cougar Natural paper. A limited AP edition of 60 is now available in the DKNG store. Check out a few closeup images of the poster below as well as our original sketch. Just a heads up, we will be releasing an art print version of the poster in the coming months.

Electric City Art Print

In May of 2013, we created a poster for Dave Matthews Band for their show in Scranton, Pennsylvania, paying homage to the city’s moniker, “The Electric City”.  We went for a semi-literal interpretation of that name by creating a skyline comprised of varying sizes and shapes of lightbulbs, while also including some of the city’s historic landmarks.  Seasoned Scranton historians will recognize the first-of-its-kind electric trolley system as well as the famed “Electric City” rooftop sign.

We’re now pleased to introduce the Electric City art print which is an 18″ x 24″, four color screen print on French Construction Blacktop paper.  The print is now available online in the DKNG Store.  Check out a few close-up photos of the poster below as well as our initial sketch of the concept.  You can also learn more about Scranton, PA in the video below.
