MPMF.11 proper got down in Cincinnati over the past weekend and, while I didn't get to see as much music as I normally would, I was honored to participate in the first Midpoint Midway. The midway was a series of art installations built into standard box-trucks. Lots of interesting and talented folks like Able, Losantiville and Soapbox were in on the action as well. I participated, as a member of Libre, in the Poster Expo which was currated by the creative team at Powerhouse Factories. Ourselves, Powerhouse, Southpaw, Keith Neltner and Rob Warnick all pitched in to build rock poster galleries in the back of our two trucks, and slung some special posters on the premesis.
If you didn't make it down to the Expo, you can purchase most of the stuff we had available at our shop.
You can see photos from the Expo, my Cut Copy Print, and a video I put together that was projected on the wall at the Expo. I also got some good shots of Cut Copy's amazing performance at Grammer's.
Lots and lots going on, so I finally got around to sorting my photos from the stellar Maps & Atlases show a couple of weeks back on the square. MPMF put the show on and there was a great turnout, Libre was even able to sell some prints. There's a couple left so come see us on the square Friday nights.

As we continue to settle in to the new Libre spot on Main St, we're not letting a silly thing like unpacking get in the way of our productivity. We've knocked out three sharp posters over the past week, which you have no doubt noticed above. The Smith Westerns poster is currently hanging proudly at MOTR anticipating the sure to bonkers show on Saturday. The Javelin and MPMF Indie Summer prints were finished off last night, and will make their debut on the square tonight (Friday 6/3 for the You, You're Awesome (CD Release!) & Javelin show.
Tonight's festivities kick-off the summer long MPMF Indie Summer Series which bring high quality rock & roll to Fountain Square every Friday night. Libre plans on having a strong presence on the Square, with a new print each week, with a smattering of t-shirts and other hand-printed goods for your consumption.
As reward for getting yourself down to the Square and supporting the excellent MPMF.11 we'll be selling posters at a discounted price than you'll find at our shop (launching next week). See you on the square (and at MOTR).
