Best Concert Poster Artist - 2002
Yep, one of the most renowned concert poster artists in the country lives right here in our own backyard. Jermaine Rogers was creating posters for the Strokes long before they were hyped to the eyeballs. And his list of clients reads as a who's who of hip and cool music: Radiohead, the Breeders and Weezer, to name a few. Just go to his Web site and you're bound to find one of your favorite artists among his collection. Each poster paints a fantastic scene that says, "If you don't get your ass to this show, you'll be sorry." With collectors all over the world, Rogers has put Houston on the concert poster map and done us proud. So the next time a brightly colored print catches your eye at a local venue, or the neighborhood head shop, be sure to give Jermaine his props. He's probably the one responsible.
