DC Space and WUST Music Hall Print Set
Two of the most venerable DC clubs are now available together for one nice price! New size for 2020: 11" x 14", which looks awesome unmatted in a frame or in a standard 16" x 20" mat. Folks asked for something a little smaller than the previous print size, so I took this request to heart!
DC Space felt like a secret. All the outliers from the 'burbs knew about Nightclub 9:30, but DC Space was more of an insider's haunt (or at least it felt that way to me). Now it's a Starbucks and the once-seedy neighborhood has gone high-end. You can't hold back the tides of urban progress, but you CAN slap this lovingly-made print on your wall as you pine away for the DC That Once Was.
Speaking of the 9:30 (back when it was still on F Street), they'd sometimes book shows at the WUST if they needed more floor space. I saw my fair share of big-bill hardcore shows there: Gang Green, SNFU, Flipper, Dead Kennedys, ALL, etc. (FunFact: I broke my rib stage-diving during SNFU... woot!) Fast forward a number of years and it seems all too obvious that this venerable radio station music hall would eventually become the new nest for the Nightclub 9:30.
Before it was the WUST it served its time as Duke Ellington's namesake jazz club, so the bonafides of this joint are iron-clad! A true piece of living history that continues to honor DC's musical culture.
As always, my printed posters are taken from my own original collage works. I silk screen them by hand, which is time consuming but also way-the-hell punk. The small inconsistencies in the printing assure you that these weren't churned out on some stinkin' laser printer.
These prints were silk screened by hand onto 100lb archival poster paper (Speckletone White from the French Paper Company) with vibrant high-quality Speedball poster inks. No two exactly alike, but all are beautiful. Limited signed edition of only 35 pieces. Paper size: 11" x 14", which fits standard frames found at your local craft store, frame shop or IKEA!
