Music ephemera comes in all shapes and sizes: handbills, stickers, remixes, flavors of vitamin water. The most treasured are the posters – they get matted and framed (by some) and plastered all over bedroom walls (by others). Some fans keep them because they’re art, others keep them as mementos of awesome shows that they blacked out at.

Does it matter? 2012 was a particularly awesome year for shows with rad poster art. Check out our top pics in the gallery below.
