It Was A Famous Night

A have a new print for sale (£25) for my friend Chris McAuley’s project It Was A Famous Night. The brief was to produce a poster for ‘the greatest gig that never happened’. I chose to reopen the legendary Edinburgh venue Cafe Graffiti for one night only (my birthday) and fill it with some of my favourite artists: Ahmad Jamal Trio, Aidan Moffat, Dabrye, Dimlite, King Creosote, Matthew Herbert Big Band, The Pictish Trail (solo), Portishead and The Phantom Band. It would be hosted by Armando Iannucci and there would be dim sum, tapas and a selection of Belgian, German and Scottish beers available… Damn I wish this event really happened.
