I know I’ve talked about the Twilight Concert Series multiple times on this blog, well the series kicks off this week with Scottish group Belle & Sebastian!!! Ahhhh!!!! Back in 1999 I was shopping at a Sugarhouse record shop, Salt City CD’s, & was drawn to the album artwork of their debut album, Tigermilk. I had never heard of the band, but I took a chance & bought the record. Holy cow! Who were these guys? After listening to the album for a few weeks I returned to Salt City & picked up, Boy With the Arab Strap & If You’re Feeling Sinister. B&S quickly became a favorite of mine. In 2004 I had the opportunity to see the band live while attending the Coachella Festival.
Last week I started a new gig poster series hand lettering a lyric from each band performing at the Twilight Series. In the process of the Belle Sebastian poster, I accidentally spilled a glass of coffee all over my sketchbook, such a sad, sad, event. You can purchase the Belle & Sebastian poster here.
