Just a quick post about a very cool print being released today at random by artist Chuck Sperry. The print is a silkscreen, signed and numbered to an edition size of 260. I suppose the price is available during the release. You can learn more by clicking this link – http://chucksperry.net/

If you have followed this blog in the past you are well aware of HiFi Centrals obsession with limited edition art created for rock bands. Last year I ran a month long posting about “The Art of the Music Business” and highlighted several of my favorite prints and also the artists who have mastered and re-defined this medium. Granted, rock art posters are nothing new we can thank the legendary Bill Graham for much of the popularity even today.
I’m a huge fan of The Black Keys and so is fellow blogger NYMike (read the prior post about his show review at Madision Square Garden). One of my favorite artists is the guy out of Massachussetts named Dan McCarthy; my wife and I have several of his prints and he always seems to come up with fun and imaginitive designs consistently. I happened to check out his website this morning and noticed that he created a print for a recent show (March 7th) at the TD Garden in Boston; apparently they were also on sale at the event as well. Dan posted that he will have a limited amount available on his site later this month.
His prints usually sell around $40 and go quick, so check out www.danmccarthy.org to and see ifyou can snag yourself one when released. Let us know if you get one too!
I’m overwhelmed with the amount of incredible artwork coming out of the Obey camp in the past two weeks. For the third week in a row pop-artist Shepard Fairey is releaseing a killer series of music inspired prints that are a much larger format that his usual style.
Over the past week he has released 6 massive images that have sold out in “record” time (no pun intended, really), getting one has been strictly luck I’m sure. This weeks release of three images is no less impressive and in my opinion probably the best thus far. I would be bummed personally if I bought any of the prints within the last two weeks since these trump those in style and impact.
These prints are expensive, around $500 per print and come in a limited edition of 50 (signed and hand numbered). I wish I had the scratch to keep up and grab some each week, but looks like the wife has kyboshed any such impulsive urges until I get the remainder of my prints framed. A bedroom of print tubes I’m sure is the reasoning, and I can’t argue my way out of that.
If you like this print check out the others at www.obeygiant.com the release times of his prints are always random (I’ve found anywhere between 2:00 and 5:00 EST to be the most common), remember, Obey is on the West Coast time. The release date for these prints is todayMay 5th, good luck!
As you know we here at Hi Fi Central are avid art collectors, specifically in music related prints. Pop propaganda artist Shepard Fairey is realeasing a very cool series of prints today at a random time. The prints are larger than his usual weekly releases and the price tag as well, $500 per print, yikes! Granted, these prints are limited to only an edition size of 40 and are very striking. There are three different prints being offered, but the one featured is my favorite.
Obey Giant is located on the West Coast so if you live on the East Coast release times usually happen any where from 2:00 to 5:00 EST, but again, it’s always random so you never know when they will be available for sale.
Fairey’s prints often sell out in minutes, even the $500 ones, so if you want them you got to be pro-active and keep hitting that refresh button and then strike! Good luck and let us know if you get one.
UPDATE: ALL THREE IMAGES ARE SOLD OUT!!

I was checking out the local listings for upcoming shows and noticed that the February 20th Flogging Molly show at Northern Lights (Clifton Park, NY) is officially sold out. It’s a bummer since I had thoughts of checking them out and clearly waited too long to make up my mind.
I have not seen Flogging Molly since I moved back from Boston and always felt they put on a good quality show. Although they are not everyone’s cup of tea since they are more mellow and exemplify a contemporary blend of Celtic, rock, indie, and a wee bit of old school punk thrown in for good measure. The band really can’t be catagorized as any one genre, but again, it’s also not for everyone.
I liked the print that the dynamic duo over at Print Mafia did for the band for a 2007 gig in Nashville. The print is almost sold out and I think only two remain available on line; it sells for $100 and is signed and numbered.
If you want to purchase this print or want to check out some other very cool creations that Print Mafia seems to magically create on a weekly basis, click here. The print is located in their SHOP under RARE POSTERS. Enjoy!

The genius duo that make up Print Mafia are at it again and have released a very cool gig poster for indie princess Liz Phair. I’ve seen Liz Phair several times when I lived in Boston and she always put on a good show; she never seems to hit the Albany, NY area which is a bummer.
I’ve highlighted prints by Print Mafia in past posts and always love the range of images and styles they use in their creations. This print is signed and numbered, however they don’t post the specific edition size which would be helpful; it costs a mere $20!!!!!

As you may well know from past posts, here at HiFi Central our walls are covered with many limited edition prints from artists we have featured in the past. Today there is a release of the iconic punk frontman from the band Black Flag, the one and only Henry Rollins.
Artist Shepard Fairey will be releasing a print honoring Rollin’s 50th birthday this afternoon. Fairey’s release times are always at a random time of his choosing, so you need to check back to the website every hour on the hour. Historically his prints sell out in a matter of minutes, so if you want one you need to be pretty diligent at hitting the refresh button every 5 seconds.
The print is in an edition of 700 and is signed and numbered by Fairey. The cost is a mere $45, so it’s a bargain for sure. Good luck and let us know if you get one!

As of 2 / 7 / 2011 print is officially SOLD OUT!
