Venue: Alamo Lamar 3
About: Died Young Stayed Pretty is the first feature documentary to take a candid look at the renaissance of North America's underground indie-rock poster movement spurred on by the launch of Gigposters.com. Picking up where punk left off, DYSP reveals a new breed of counter-culturists; artists that set out to destroy the mainstream through their controversial & intensely visceral design work. Yaghoobian travels across US & Canada to offer a look into to the world of some of the giants of this modern subculture who have worked on posters for groups like Arcade Fire, Radiohead, Sonic Youth, and the list goes on. Under the guise of advertising for rocks shows, these unheralded masters of the silkscreen carry on public discourses that range from hot button political issues to lewd inside jokes.
