Masthay Studios Summer Tour 2013 Prints Release Information

Summer Tour is just a few short weeks away, so as a wise man once said – Let’s get this show on the road! The first round of individual prints for this summer will be available for purchase next Friday, June 14, 2013 at 12 noon EST on

This first round will include the following venues:
Bangor, Maine – Rise of the Cephalopods
Jones Beach – Finally Free
Merriweather Post Pavilion – Barn Burner
Northerly Island, Chicago – Skyballz aka-The Overflow Tank

Cephalopods are widely regarded as the most intelligent of all the invertebrates. Naturally they will rise up and take their revenge on the human race, it’s only a matter of time. I imagine they will start their land domination in Maine since so many of their brethren have been harvested out of the waters there. Donning their “above water” rocket propelled mechanical exoskeletons, they first entrance – then ensnare.
Watch yourselves and stay safe!!

Can’t wait to secure this and all my other Summer Tour pieces? Grab one of the very few remaining Summer Tour Subscriptions. At $300 shipped, you’re guarenteed matching numbered prints from all Summer Tour editions. With a minimum of 10 prints it’s by far the most economical way to add to your print collection, plus the lack of stress dealing with print drops will save years on your life. No promises, but it’s also looking very likely that at least one bonus print will be included with subs.

Stay tuned to the Masthay Studios Facebook page for additional images and info on the rest of Summer Tour. I plan on hitting the lots at Bangor, Jones Beach, Merriweather, the Gorge and Tahoe so keep an eye out for the weirdo walking around Shakedown with a portfolio of prints and be sure to say hello!

Lots more offical work coming out of the studio this summer also including Furthur, Widespread Panic, Yonder Mountain String Band, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, RockyGrass Festival, The Bounce Festival and many more!

Have a happy and safe summer everyone, I’ll see ya in Bangor.
