Commemorative tickets

Is anyone still collecting tickets in this increasingly paperless world? Maybe less and less, but for a few Orlando shows, promoters gave us good reason to revive old keepsake tendencies. Leading the resurgence of event-tickets-as-art was the Civic Minded 5, whose 3-D pyramid design for Sun Araw at Will’s Pub literally stood for itself as a stunning example, as did their pop-up ticket for Peter Brötzmann at Timucua (both designed by Jim Ivy). Then there was Dave Plotkin’s John Vanderslice at the Acre tickets, featuring rare photos the musician took on various tours. Admittance to Emperor X at the Space was granted by flashing tickets marked by photos from all around Orlando (shot by local musicians Ark Calkins and David Zimlinghaus). They might be good for just one night, but you gotta admit, they help amp up anticipation for upcoming shows more than an overlooked email notification from Ticketfly.
