Poster descripction:
Here you have another classic from the always impressive Emek. Done for Prodigy at the State Theater in Detroit on June 24, 1998, this poster has an incredible amount of detail. As said by Emek himself on emek.net, “6 armed samurai, more detail than you can shake a sword at.” This poster is rare.

Notes by C3:
One nice thing about heavy travel for work, it affords you wide exposure to a lot of music across the US.  I was on a consulting gig at the University of Michigan and I just happened to check the area for shows and looky what I find…Prodigy…in Detroit…DONE.
So I went to this one alone…in downtown Detroit.  While walking to the theatre from the dimly lit parking lot a couple of blocks away, all I could picture in my head was the teen thugs from the movie Kids and me taking a beatdown from a gang of children.  I have no idea how I didn’t get mugged/raped/killed that night.
Prodigy was absolutely going off – the beats were so loud that it felt like a full body massage to be in that audience.  I got legitimately nauseated from the gut-punching I received from the speakers located on all four sides of the theatre.  Got my grind on with some random-but-hot, inked and pierced chick…good times.  Meat Beat Manifesto opened and I hadn’t heard of them before, but they were awesome as well and I became an immediate fan.
