WBIR.com: Knoxville graphic designer Justin Helton is a master silkscreen artist and his creations can be seen at shows for some of the hottest bands
And from there, his idea becomes a silkscreen masterpiece. "Silkscreening is a method where you burn a stencil in to a silk screen and the stencil will lay flat on top of the paper and you push the ink through the stencil onto the paper. Each color has it's own layer."
It's sort of an old school method that's making a come-back. "Silkscreen posters became famous back in the 60s with The Grateful Dead and all the bands in the 60s that were coming up in San Francisco."
Phish, though, is his favorite band. "Phish is kind of what got me into posters cause going to see them when I was younger, they always had posters made for their show."
And he actually got to create two posters for their shows. "I was nervous, but the funny thing was is the first poster that they had me do they contacted me within five days of the show, which is I mean, an insane timeline," says Helton. Read more

A new website launches today that will bring together pictures, videos, discussion, planning, and more related to the sky-filled light festivities that fans have come to know as "glow stick wars". While that sometimes entails heavy, pointed, injury-inducing items, GlowStickWars.com distributes only thin, concert-friendly, 8" loops, and they've branded their own just for fans: Show Sticks. Through a partnership launched today, a percentage of all sales go to The Mockingbird Foundation, whose logo and website URL appear on the customized packaging, designed just for fans. The website, which aims to build a "first-of-breed concert photo and video sharing community" where you own your own content, will be offering a pre-sale immediately, with tubes of 100 going for just $5.99, plus entry into a Bonnaroo ticket giveaway. Pre-register now to reserve your username and get a coupon for a free tube with your first order.
Seeing this show, at this venue was so intimate, Small Axe, Sweet and Dandy, a ripping Black Dog, Trey was in rare form. The best way to sum up this show, this tour, Trey’s playing, and his attitude in general is with what he said right before playing the song What’s Done. Trey told the audience that he was excited to finish this show and get on a bus for 13 hours and go home to see his girls who he missed terribly.
The loving, energetic, powerful, sober and enthralling Trey we have been looking for is back. He loves his fans. He loves his family. He loves his music. He loves you.
