After one too many crowd-surfing dreams, you decided to start your own garage band. Then you realized it takes more than leather, studs, and killer dance moves to make music, so you dropped the mic and settled for a less flashy, more cubicled lifestyle. You can still release your inner rock star (only much more quietly) by papering your walls with funktastic band posters from Spike Press. Chicago-based designer and illustrator John Solimine churns out clever screen prints for bands like The National, Rilo Kiley, A.C. Newman, Kim, and Apostle of Hustle and festivals like Intonation and Blues Fest. The posters bubble with endearing characters reminiscent of vintage cartoons and will grab center stage in any room. And several collectible pieces are priced under $25, making this a rock ’n’ roll lifestyle you can actually live with. Sounds like music to your ears. Available online at spikepress.com.
