And, we finally were able to catch them live. And dudes, their reputation is not only solid gold, but it perfectly earned and well deserved.
We arrived at the show early in order to get our posters to the merch table ASAP, and then it was time to relax outside of the beautiful Carnegie Library of Homestead Music Hall grounds in Homestead with a glass of wine and a lovely fall night gathering on the hill. It was pretty spectacular. And things only got better as we met up with our super friends Sarah & Scott from The Wreckids. Sarah had toured with The National in a past band (Boxstep) and invited us to hang out with her & the guys in The National after the show. Rock star sweetpeas, that’s all I can say about the end of the evening. HUGE thanks to The National for the amazing show, the hospitality backstage afterwards and the giggles.
Info about this new poster for The National, with Owen Pallett:
Etheral & earthbound, all at once. That’s sort of the charm of the amazing band The National. We love this band, and we’re thrilled to be working with them again too on a poster for our hometown, Pittsburgh.
This is our hand screenprinted, limited edition silkscreen poster for The National with dark sky blue, dark yellow and light blue hand mixed inks. Edition of 150, signed and numbered (by me, strawberryluna). Size: 16 x22 inches (39.4 cm x 55.9 cm.) Paper: archival Cougar, White 100lb cover weight.
This poster was sold at the show and on tour with the band, and I have just a small number for sale, so they will go quick. Now available at my website here. I design & hand screenprint my prints and posters. If you have any questions, just let me know.
Here are some quick process shots, too, with more & nicer ones to come soon in my Flickr account.
