Nice Live at PRF Auktoberfyst 2011

The newest band to the PRF Auktoberfyst 2011 lineup was a band called Nice. They’ve got a Bully, a guy with Two Hands, a fictitious Limb, and a dude with no shirt. Really, what else could you ask for? They plowed through their inaugural set with poise and solidarity for all the funk rockers that have gone before them. There were also notes, voices, and rhythm.

PRF Auktoberfyst 2011 Poster by Chris Williams at Plastic Flame

Chris Williams from Plastic Flame Press returns in fine form with another festival poster for the PRF Auktoberfyst 2011.

The Poster is four screens on 80 lbs French Madero Beach. It measures 12.5″x19″, and is an edition of 50. Interested parties can arrange for purchase at or hope to get one at the show.

A description of the poster, from the artist himself:

I think Jonah had said something about Bradley needing a statue erected in his honor, so I thought about trying to create a stately portrait of a hunter with his collection. A viking fish named Thor, a pipe smoking owl, a mini T. Rex and a Christmas cheetah. The request to have “Genuine strength manifests itself as quiet resolve” incorporated helped seal the deal.

Notes: the fish was originally a piranha, the cheetah the ghost of a grizzly bear and the T Rex a greyhound; the owl has been around since the initial sketch for no apparent reason.
