Philadelphia’s Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction gallery is putting on a show called Sub Pop Art Debt next month. Here’s the gallery’s description of the show:
For nearly twenty five years Sub Pop Records’ art department has created covers, posters, stickers, a few match books and one time even a glow in the dark key chain for some of the most celebrated acts in indie rock: Nirvana, The Shins, Mudhoney, Love Battery, Fleet Foxes,The Spinanes, Six Finger Satelitte, Band of Horses, Eric’s Trip, Jale, Jaill, the list goes on.
This collection represents the odds and ends. A stock pile of sketches and art work. Label ads and press sheets. Blue-lines and cutting room floor scraps culled from over two decades worth of releases from one of the most storied record labels in music.
Opening Reception August 3rd, 6-8PM
Art In the Age. 116 N. 3rd St. Philadelphia
