The Acadia Sessions

Over five years ago my friends Marc & Gina Bartholomew first rented a warehouse space in the Bayside neighborhood of Portland, Maine to build a recording studio. My band Conifer was the first band to record in the space...barely any walls erected and with minimal gear we recorded our first full length. That was in 2004. Since then they have recorded some of the best records to come out of our city & elsewhere (Ocean, Cerberus Shoal, Seekonk, An Evening With, from extreme metal to indie rock to folk and beyond)... Their latest endeavor, with the help of film documentarian David Camlin, is a new music documentary series filmed inside the studio called The Acadia Sessions to be aired this winter on public television's WPBN:

Today I printed the posters for the shows launch party at Space Gallery..

The music + craft festival was a success, despite the pouring rain all day. We almost sold out of the "Bury Me In Maine" shirts and another design. Thank you to all who came out that day and to the festival organizers who made the event possible.
One of the best performances of the day was a great set by the band Batshelter. Go see them.

Swarming Hordes 12" discography! Lathe cut vinyl by Peter King, New Zealand. Clear vinyl, VERY LIMITED to only 42 copies available mid-September for pre-order from Los Angeles based record label Trademark Recordings. I designed the drafts below and will be screen printing the jackets. Metallic gold and black ink on hvy white.



"Alright, let’s go straight to the facts by listing the three most important bands in Seattle music history: The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Nirvana, and the Swarming Hordes. No, this is not hyperbole. Ask anyone who has lived in Seattle for the past decade or two and they’ll say the exact same thing. The Hordes toured with Modest Mouse, said “fuck you” to an offer from Sub Pop, played so hard they’d often throw up at the end of shows, had fashion mullets and ironic mustaches before it was fashionable and ironic, skateboarded to Hell and back while cranking Nuns Have No Fun, made Slayer and Metallica temporarily break-up, and laughed in the face of the Fucking Champs. No superlatives needed. Seriously, just ask. I dare you. Just ask! Bow down and play some fucking metal."

Members went on to jam with Girth, the Abodox, and tons of other bands.

Empennage + Arm Factory at PICNIC Music & Arts Festival

Confirmed...i think. I will have a booth and the print shop co-op will have one hopefully right next to me. The event will be taking place at Lincoln Park in downtown Portland, Maine on September 12th... It will have a number of local bands performing, many many crafters and some food vending going on. I will be doing a very limited run of posters for the PICNIC Festival..and there might be a giant fluffy monster eating itself on the poster, but that has not been confirmed yet.
