• Alan Forbes Limited Edition Merch •
The Chapel is very proud to announce the second limited edition round of our artist created merchandise line, designed by legendary Bay Area poster artist Alan Forbes.
Alan is an artist who needs absolutely no introduction, in his 30 + year career he has produced genre bending and era defining art for countless bands, labels and venues. From Melvins to Faith No More, Rage Against The Machine, QOTSA, Patti Smith, B.B. King, The Grateful Dead, Primus, Earthless and far too many more to mention.
Alan’s work has produced some of the most beloved and iconic posters of pretty much every venue in the Bay Area and beyond and he has been a trailblazing icon for the renaissance of Rock poster artists.
Amongst the long list of venues Alan’s work has graced, The Chapel has benefitted from so many incredible posters over the years, far more than any other artist, both as his himself and in collaboration with Caitlin Mattisson. These extraordinary images have done as much as any performance, live record, film or anything else to cement The Chapel’s recent legacy amongst Bay Area music venues.
Alan Forbes is the very essence of an independent Bay Area artist and as one of the few remaining fully independent venues left in the Bay, we could not be more thrilled to announce this unique limited edition one of a kind merchandise line designed specifically for The Chapel by Alan Forbes.
Every purchase made will go toward helping keep The Chapel (which is an independently owned, booked and run venue) going through this current situation.
