In the 1970's, Jonathan Richman founded the group Modern Lovers, a very influential proto-punk band. Since then he has had an extensive solo career. This is an original poster promoting Richman at Berbati's Pan in Portland during summer 2001. The famous Berbati's Pan was a great place to experience live music, from its opening in 1994 through 2010 when it finally closed its doors. These posters were produced in tiny quantities for small venues on very short notice. There were no official Reprints of these posters! We definitively know from printing records and first hand accounts by artist Mike King that these posters were issued in quantities of 25 – 750, with the most common print runs being just 175, 250, or 350!
