Though some industrious fans discovered the venue last week and a Santa Barbara newspaper has published the details in recent days, I now have permission to post the solid info on the DJ gig I announced last week.

The Savoy performers featuring guest DJ Martin Gore of Depeche Mode (and other acts to be announced)
Date: Saturday, May 07, 2011
Location: The Savoy
409 State Street, Santa Barbara, California 93101
Time: 7pm
Tickets: Regular $25.00 & VIP: $50.00 (Click here to purchase.)
(Age limit to be confirmed.)

This post’s accompanying image features a teaser for the poster I designed for the gig! The poster features my artwork and design concept, with the typesetting of John Roshell. You can also see a thumbnail on the Facebook event page. In addition to being used as the event promo piece, there will be a limited edition print run available for sale at the show, with proceeds benefiting Rockshop Academy. For a bit more money, there will be a select number of posters signed by Martin. If you want one, make sure you purchase early! Combining my love of art, design and Depeche Mode with contributing to a great cause has made for an amazing experience all around. I hope you all enjoy the artwork!

Be sure to “like” Rockshop Academy on Facebook, RSVP for the event, and share with your friends! It’s sure to be an awesome and unique show.


Amanda is an enthusiastic, globe-trotting Mode fan who discovered the band in late 1998. Although she often feels like she got a late start in the Depeche Mode's career, she's survived nearly 20 years of the fandom, five new albums and multiple meetings with her love for the band intact (and stronger than ever). Amanda is a life-long creative, a classically trained graphic designer, working professionally as a User Experience Designer for one of the world's largest technology companies. When not at work or traveling for Depeche, she enjoys character illustration, comics, movies and Japanese Culture. And cats. Lots of Cats.
