If you’re looking for some affordable art that screams “I like music!” to adorn your naked walls, consider a detour from shows to the SXSW Flatstock gig poster show in the Austin Convention Center.

Whether it’s a minimal industrial-looking print from a Wilco show, a melty psychedelic neon cat on a Neon Indian gig poster, or cute Threadless-esque pun-ny prints for a kid or kid-at-heart’s bedroom walls, the show has a wide selection of art from local and international creators. Other items include postcards, shirts and enamel pins. Some smaller prints start at $5 and other limited or rare pieces, like the full nine poster series from the original Emo’s closing run of shows, go for more than $150.

Flatstock rolls on from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The event is open to badges and the public via a free SXSW Guest Pass. A full list of the exhibitors is available here.
