Historic hype

Through Tuesday, September 30 Old Ironsides' vintage show posters

With the music industry having changed so much over the years—music distribution shifting from vinyl, CD and tape to digital; jukeboxes making way for iPods—few relics of “the old days” have survived the times as well as show posters. They're still useful affixed to a music venue's doorway and posted on a band's Facebook page. For the rest of the month, people can help Old Ironsides celebrate its 80th anniversary by viewing a bunch of past show posters highlighting bands that have played the venue. Lament the gig you missed (Death Cab for Cutie or the New Pornographers, anyone?) or better: Visit Old I's website for upcoming gigs that'll also help it celebrate the big 8-0. 1901 10th Street, www.theoldironsides.com.
