Go Local! Vol. 1

by | |
I have been in Lexington for 5 years now, and couldn't ask for a better hometown. It's large enough to foster great businesses and ideas, but small enough to feel that you aren't lost in a crowd. Many of my favorite places to go (like Stella's, mentioned yesterday) are the local businesses that were established and continue to thrive here in Lexington. I thought it would be fun to write a series highlighting my local favorites so that you can enjoy them too.

Cricket Press
From cricket-press.com:
"Cricket press is a tiny little operation geared towards designing and hand printing silk-screened posters for music events, art shows, propaganda, and basically anything you'd want to make a poster for. We especially love doing gig posters for punk, indie-rock, jazz, and improvised music events. Reason being, this is just the music we love, and the people we love to work with."

Cricket Press makes a stroll through downtown Lexington seem like a stroll through an art gallery. I have seen music posters around the world--London, Berlin, Paris, New York--and these are on par with any and better than most. They are completely unique, and often incorporate a bit of whimsy. If you're lucky enough to score an original print, it's a great piece of art to frame, as well as a great way to remember one of your favorite shows. They also make cards and stationery that are cute, cute, cute! Find their products at the Morris Book Shop or visit their Etsy page.
