Widespread Panic – Wood Tour poster

The Fillmore, Denver, CO
February 10th, 11th, 12th, 2012
Artist Edition of 95
printed on metallic pewter paper
(the paper for the artist edition has suffered a few minor dings on the edges. If customers feel their poster is damaged, they can return it for a refund, but not replacements.)

SOLD OUT – The rest of the inventory will be released in next weeks lotto.

Sorry the site was so rocky for the sale, we’ll be changing things in the future. But we got hammered with traffic and sold out of the inventory in just over a minute.

The remaining inventory of the AE and some other goodies will be released in a purchasing lottery next Wednesday, March 7th. So, if you miss out on this sale, or want to try for a rare variant, check back next week for more info on the lotto.

        Sweet, that is what i thought I got nervous when I got back from lunch and saw the new post about shipping double charges…. Is a pay pal buttun just going to pop up under the pic of the print like on Squirts site?

        Thanks

        Marq, i take it with this release of the AE that there will not be a chance of a variant for those that purchase today?

        Thanks if you can answer this question!

    Yea that email had me worried too about the double shipping charges that said were applied. I didn’t go to make a purchase so this had me thinking a missed the 1st drop. Thanks for the info and hope to be lucky enough to get one if not this drop then maybe on the 2nd/lottery drop?

    Thanks! Are variants being randomly added to these orders Marq?

    Or can we at least enter in the lottery for one when you do release them?

    Seriously…all gone in two minutes? I think folks need to be limited to one per person. As a bighorn biologist in Colorado and big time Widespread guy, I was really looking forward to this. So disappointed.

      wow…I’m as shocked as you are that a bighorn biologist/widespread painc fan didnt get special treatment when this print went up for sale. Eveyone had the same chance as you. ..SUPPLY & DEMAND

      Man, that is totally uncalled for. Yeah the drop may have sucked but Marq is trying the best he can. He’s an artist not a computer geek.

        It only sucked to those whiners who didnt get one. People need to get a grip…I propose both of you go get yourself some artistic talent-get some gigs doing posters for bands and build yourselves a website to sell through..

      That’s mean to say man. Marq’s a great guy and even throws in free variants to those that purchase from him, if you happen to be one of the lucky ones that scores a variant. It is bitter when the site goes down and then when it is back up they are gone. But Marq I am sure did not let too many get sold today for that very reason and can be assured it was only one per person but I don’t know for sure. Pretty sure if someone tried to buy two of them then they would have been sent back and by then they would have lost the poster.

      I know Marq sold way less then he had planned on today due to the site going down and all.

      Is this the case Marq? Did you hold more prints back because of the site being down or was it the same amount of prints/posters that were designated to be dropped today? Answer when you have the time as I am sure you are quite busy right now. Thanks as always for the opportunity and here’s to the lottery drop being a good one.

      Do you people always cry like children when things don’t go your way? This quote is hysterical,

      “You are a poor excuse for an artist. Nice drop k00k. I see why nobody buys most your shit.”
      -wsp (effort scoring poster = creativity choosing handle)

      15 minutes prior to this post, this guy was day dreaming of this cool new poster, from one of the better artist in the poster game, all sparkling in the sunshine just placed up on the wall, straightens out the brand new frame one last time, takes a step back and perfect, thinks to self, “Golly, I am so cool, just like my new post……..” and than he snaps out of it, scrabbles to click back to the site that was dropping the sweet poster, but unfortunately by the time he got back to it, he had already maximized & immediately closed so many other web-sites and applications, by the time he arrived at the correct page and hit refresh, guess what…….SOLD OUT!!!!!

      It’s cool put that old shitty poster back up on your wall and stop lashing out at other people because of your own inadequacies and failures.

      In all seriousness, next time you end up losing out, which I assure you will be sooner than later, instead acting like a child, try to expend the energy that you used crying after this poster drop, in a more positive manner like asking some of us, WINNERS, what we did different to land the poster we wanted? Maybe even go crazy and Google it? All us Winners were once losers like yourself, the difference is we didn’t cry about it, we worked at it and got better, more educated and prepared for next time.

    While I’m also very disappointed that these sold out in like 1 or 2 minutes, your post is way out of line. Shame on you. There is no excuse for that type of behavior and using profanity is a childish online version of tantrum throwing.

    Site was a little rocky to say the least! I mean I refreshed every minute or two, saw it up, got to paypal and SOLD OUT! Really! I was disappointed in Denver but this is even worst! This poster is all I’ve thought about the last week! And if people could get more than 1 per order then shame on the seller!!!

    Yeah the shipping is what got me Marq. I saw I was about to buy it with the existing order shipping-went back to the page to correct it and BAM-they were gone. SHoulda just clicked through with the existing and paypaled you the otherr 3 bucks!

    I cant believe all the people bitching about how they got so close to the check out but didn’t score. Is this your first try at buying a poster, this happens all the time. Its all luck with these drops, stop blaming MS, and stop crying and try for the lotto….

    My only real aggrivation with posters these days, WSP ones in particular. Are the crazy limited numbers printed! I understand people want rare shit, but the fillmore in denver holds like 4500 people and was super sold out. So why only make 600 event posters? Just one more thing for the ebay sellers to get rich off of!!! Ive seen these going for $300 on ebay already!! It wouldnt happen if enough were made in the first place… Jus sayin

    Reply
  25. Trav

    There’s nothing else Marq could have done to make this easier. Any high demand artist’s site will have issues with an online drop- you’re either going to click at the right time or wrong time, it’s all luck. It was either this or a random lottery (which he’s also doing, so everybody who didn’t score you still have a chance!).

    wsp is a troll- don’t feed him…

    Hey now, let’s simmer down. I am very sorry this sale was so clunky and that many experienced aggravation and disappointment. We are working on a new server/store situation for the future. We have saved a decent amount of these posters and the variants for a lotto sale next week, so please come back and try again then. (There will be some other Panic variants as well)

      I hear ya Marq, thanks as always for the chance and a second chance come lottery time! This happens to all well known artists out there and I hear what Jesse is saying. It really all depends on when you hit refresh and if you can have smooth sailing when it comes to the PayPal side of the purchase. Congrats to all those that scored this poster and wish everyone the best of luck come March 7th when Marq has the lottery for these and others.

      Marq you rock as an artist and I will always be back to try and make future purchases from you!

    The site did handle purchases differently. I live in the PNW and didnt see a PP link till a few mins after someone posted ’10 secs ago’ I got a PP confirm. I didn’t see an option for more than 1 poster. Still waiting to see it go through PP & my bank. I don’t count my chickens till they hatch 🙂 Hoping to uncross these fingers sometime today.

    Thanks Marq! Really love the way you do drops. Do not apologize. We are lucky to get a smallish window of time for randomness. Add to that, how many artists actually give variants randomly as well. Keep up the excellent work on all fronts.

    I thought when the guy posted “10 seconds ago” it was a joke! It took 2 or 3 minutes of refreshing before I saw a PP link! Im on the east coast so maybe that was it? I still think artist should kinda get off the high horse and make more prints available. The supply should match the demand!

      I understand your point, but It’s not that simple. This is a project I did with Widespread Panic, they printed 600 to sell, I just do a the smaller artist edition and a few variants.

      1. dut

        Hey Marq, I’m not talking about the AE being only 95. That makes perfect sense to me. It’s there only being 600 at the show that gets under my skin. Are you saying it was the bands idea to only have 600 at the shows? They should know better!

        1. Tyler A.

          Get in line early @ the show man. Always end up meeting good folks and getting what you need @ the merch booth. I have never once missed out on a print I knew I wanted. I have spent many an hour in line just to get the print I wanted, but it’s always worth it. Cheers!!!

            Everything shouldn’t be such an event at a Panic show. Back in the day if you wanted a show print you just made sure you got it before the music started. It’s only been the last couple years that all the prints at good shows are super limited releases. We already have to freak out when it comes to tickets, why add prints to the fray? Musicians and artist know the demand, so they should print an adequate supply! My 2 cents

              If you let the presses run then there’s nothing special about being able to secure the print… If you want one, you gotta do the work…

                In my opinion, the prints 10 years ago weren’t nearly as nice as they are now. Don’t get me wrong, JTL’s work was super cool and demand was low, but it was also printed on flimsy poster paper and was easily damaged. As far as tickets go, the only tickets that are hard to get have been La Playa & Wood tour. Apart from those shows, I never have ticket issues. Maybe Red Rocks, but again, you gotta play to win…I got shut out on tix for the denver woods, but still somehow managed to see fridays show, get a Sperry and this wonderful print, and be 5 ft from the stage. Just had to make it happen. No freak outs neccesary. Cheers.

          The variants weren’t for sale today but as Marq stated a few posts above that “Yep, a few variants tossed into the orders from today. I guess no one had time to read the for sale info that went with the button.”

          I didn’t notice this either as i was trying to make a purchase as quick as possible so if it was there at that time i must have missed it. Thought it said “if you miss out on this sale, or want to try for a rare variant, check back next week for more info on the lotto.”

          So that’s great news to hear Marq. Good luck to all that got one in hopes that you get a bonus variant!!

    I love the refresh game. Nerves spike with every Alt R. The buttons are suddenly there…and you’re right Marq, no time to read when you have tunnel vision on that PP Buy button. Pray tell, please tell us what it said/what we missed. I love the original on pewter but that antique gold variant is SWEET! Thanks again for a fun sale. See ya next week for the lotto…

    I had a pretty good practice today with the ’01 Kicks club soccer team this evening. Young dudes worked hard on their usual ball control skills, some one-touch passing drills and core strength exercises. Hate I missed the print release, but thats the way the cookie crumbles…err…that’s the way the poster drops. 🙂 Besides, there’s always next week! Else, feeBay in the weeks & months/years to come. I nabbed an awesome Spusta A/E from Chucktown off the feeBay for a hundred bones a week or two ago. That was ’08, I was there, our show prints were destroyed by rain…but you know, I kept my eyes open and eventually got what I needed. Que sera sera people.

    Sierra, should be no problem at all. I don’t believe Jeff sold the La Playa prints yet. Also, if you’re referring to the original on-sale for those tickets – they were in high demand. I’ve never met a single fan of the band that wasn’t trying to nab those!

    Got my AE today and it is a beauty. What was even more beautiful was the 10/15 Old Gold variant that was in the tube!! My wife is gonna kill me when she finds out how much $$ I just spent on getting the old gold framed.

    Hi Marq. I’m fairly new to your site and the process you use for things like the lotto tomorrow. Is there a place where I can sign up for the lottery? This is my last hope for one of these beautiful AEs so I don’t want to screw it up. Thanks!
