Considering how fantastically creative many of the gig posters for indie shows are these days, it’s not surprising that there’s a whole group of collectors out there that specialize in rock posters. The documentary Just Like Being There does a great job of profiling the artists behind these sometime sanctioned (often not) posters and flyers that advertise the local shows.
This doc checks in with gig poster artists like Daniel Danger, Jay Ryan and others to talk about how they first got into the medium and how they create their art. The rest of the documentary is filled out with plenty of interviews of the actual muses, bands like the Thermals, Archers of Loaf, Nada Surf and others.
