This unique and vibrant Wrapping Paper is sure to add an extra smile to the recipient of any gift you include inside of it. It’s a fun and colorful blast from music’s past, curated by Brian Coleman, creator of the Buy Me, Boston and Check the Technique.
Each thick, glossy sheet measures 24 inches tall by 36 inches high (horizontal) and features 141 different ticket stubs from a span of five decades. From Roller Derby throwdowns in the 1950s; to all-ages punk matinees in the ‘80s; and world music gatherings in the ‘90s; these cards celebrate everything from arena blowouts to neighborhood get-togethers. And whether you were at these shows or not, you will have a blast revisiting bands and venues you loved and miss.
It should be pointed out: this Wrapping Paper isn't just for Bostonians – although the venues are from the Boston area, the artists are from around the world, from James Brown, The Wailers, King Sunny Ade, the Del Fuegos, Black Flag, the Grateful Dead, Mission Of Burma and the J. Geils Band to Sun Ra, Public Enemy, New Kids On The Block and Menudo.
