The other day, the San Francisco Chronicle published an article and slideshow on rock posters and our upcoming show, which takes place this Saturday, October 22. For their story, the newspaper interviewed our good pal Chuck Sperry. If you subscribe to the Chronicle and can get around the paywall, go here. Otherwise, check out Chuck’s version here. See you on Saturday!
One of our favorite unofficial traditions of the Festival of Rock Posters is the practice of making custom posters for the show. A few weeks back, we showed off Frank Alan Bella‘s piece. Today, we received an advance look at a collaboration between Wes Wilson and Carolyn Ferris. And there are still two weeks to go!
There’s still time to renew your TRPS membership before we open the doors to the Festival of Rock Posters on October 22, 2016.

What To Know About the Door
We open the doors at 10:00 am and the show runs until 6:00 pm. 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, just wander by later when things have settled down a bit and get in for nothing—you can’t beat that. Bring your friends and family!
When you join TRPS, you have a range of membership premiums to choose from. In addition to T-shirts by Gregg Gordon, Alan Forbes, 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.
See you there!
