A few weeks ago, I posted a drastically different Global Union poster. Why the redo? Well, all involved parties (myself included) agreed it wasn’t nearly as dynamic as it needed to be. And so, with music blaring and windows open, I rebuilt this thing from scratch, reusing only the birds on the wire from the older version. They served their purpose well enough, and it would have been a waste to keep them out of this. Plus, I like including something hand-drawn in almost everything I do. More people should.

If you’ve never been to this event before, this year’s a good year to start. Sure, you’ve never heard of the bands before. But it won’t matter once they start playing. The live shows usually surpass most of what you pay to see at clubs throughout the year. And it usually turns into one big dance party by the end of the evening.

This year, the fine folks who bring you this FREE festival every year are wondering just how much the thousands and thousands of you who attend it, truly love it. And they’re wondering with the help of Kickstarter. In short, Kickstarter is a way for hard-working folks like you and I to support the things that entertain us, with the modest financial amounts we can afford to part with. In a way, it finally makes us “patrons of the arts,” a title that used to only belong to folks who wore monocles and reaped the benefits of Bush’s tax cuts.

Global Union has a pretty lofty goal, but if every person who attended last year donated a mere $5, they’d meet their goal a few times over. Not too shabby, eh?

You can read the donation levels (and their respective prize packages) by clicking here. And if you have ever been, or plan to be this year, consider tossing a five-spot their way.

    Great redesign! And I LOVE you lettering choices.
