Who is Michael Michael Motorcycle?
Are you looking for an alternative to the indie hipster lovefest called the Sunset Junction Street Fair? Are you looking for an artsy fartsy night, after pigging out on tofu from the Tofu Festival? Are you looking to rock, but not necessarily roll? Check out the Michael Motorcycle, Dan Grzeca, and Guy Burwell show on Saturday night, Aug. 18th, at the Mr. Musichead Gallery (7511 W. Sunset Blvd.). The man who shares the same first name and middle initial is one of the most sought-after rock 'n roll poster artist. Having designed posters for musical acts such as Clap Your Hands Say Yeah to the Blonde Redhead and the Mars Volta, Michael Michael Motorcycle's work has been showcased around the country as well as in concert festivals like Vegoose. His unique creative style, typography, and design sets him apart from his contemporaries. His handmade Victorian-styled prints are some of the most-prized rock/art posters available out there.
