I designed a special limited edition t-shirt and poster for the Coachella Music Festival this year. I am teamed up with my old friend Gary Tovar. For those that do not know Gary is the founder of Goldenvoice Concerts. I did art and merch for Garys shows from his first one in So Cal, 1981 until the early 90s. This is going to be a lot of fun so come by the tent and say hi. We were asked by our old pal Paul Tollett to set up my old 80s print shop and make the shirts on site in our tent at the festival. Each shirt will be hand printed and hand colored by me and my crew of talanted artists. See a preview and our location below!Ths place is huge so check the map, we are close to the entrance in the lobby area, look for the general store sign and we will be right next to them.
I am making just a few custom shirts for the raffles we will be having at the GV30 shows coming up Dec 16, 17, 18 at the santa monica civic. WE will also have vip passes, posters from the show and some super rare 80s show stuff up for raffle prizes too. Bring a few bucks and win something rare and cool! The show shirts will be 20 bucks, we didn't make a lot so get one as soon as you get in! We will have signed posters (only 500)for 10 bucks, signed by me and Gary Tovar. We still have the limited edition shirt up here for sale. We will probably only have a few of these limited edition shirts left by show time so get one fast! I will post other stuff as we decide what to raffle. See you at the shows!!! Below is just one of only a few of the customs up for raffle, all hand made (by me) and each is different. less than a dozen will be made like this.
Sorry Folks, this one is now sold out. This is what makes the goldenvoice shirts rare and so collectable. Those that were able to buy early now have a cool shirt and i guarantee it has already gone up in value. A nice investment that you can wear! We have archived a few for future events, until then thanks for the interest and thanks for helping out!- Otis
In the 80s, i designed and printed all of the special limited edition show t-shirts for Gary Tovar, the founder of Goldenvoice Concerts. The first being The infamous DOA TSOL show at Devonshire Downs, 1981. Many more followed over the years. As many of you know, especially collectors, those old relics have become pretty valuable, fetching big bucks on auction sites. Mainly because collectors have come to realize that these are some of the rarest forms of merchandise in the music memorabilia world. Hand printed and unlike regular band shirts these were made for single events and made in very small numbers. Believe it or not some people used to complain at the early shows at our 7 dollar a shirt sales prices. Go ahead, kick yourself. Most of those easily sell now for 1-400 bucks. For the first time since the late 80s I have designed a couple of shirts and hand printed them in the old school tradition for the GV30 show coming up in december. Again, these are very limited in numbers. Since these shows are nearly sold out, if not already we are releasing one of them now for pre sale. "Thirty Years In The Pit" this shirt is a special limited edition, only 300 made. It comes with a special card signed by myself and Gary Tovar.
The other show shirt (also made in small numbers) with the bands listed will only be sold on the days of the show. Not before and not after, enjoy a sneak peek! See you at the shows!
This one will only be sold the days of the shows
