Who needs a museum when you have a brick wall and some paste?

Chicago, IL – Rock posters don’t always have to feature dewey-eyed boys in leather jackets squinting at the camera whilst wearing tight jeans and sad, sad smirks. Sometimes, they can be works of art — at least at Pitchfork Music Festival, where they have the most drool-worthy collection of concert posters we’ve ever seen in our various meanderings.

With hands firmly crossed in front of us — so as not to have too easy access to wallets — my trusty photog Radhika and I gazed like children in a sea of frolicking puppies at the many glorious and brightly colored poster arrayed at the fest.

We’ve got a peek at the goods below. Those at home, feel thankful that your wallets are not as empty as mine currently is. Top Ramen, here I come.

This Weeknd poster is bringing back some House Of Balloons memories…
