At least 200 of these old staples are from Rusted Root posters I hung beside the The Decade and all over Oakland back in 1991.

On average, I would print 1000 posters per show and in the middle of the night, I'd hit every phone poll throughout Pittsburgh. Though this was arguably a bit over the top, my thought was that the more people saw the name, the more likely they might check us out at some point. Plus, I had nothing better to do... All I knew was that I wanted people to hear our music, because if they did, I firmly believed they would love it.
