Rock City Posters is Roller's second attempt at a retail business.
"Is it a little too big city for Reno? Maybe. But at some point, when is it not? And why would somebody in Reno not appreciate it the same as somebody in Seattle?" Roller said. "Everyone raves about Austin, Texas and New York City, and that's great, but at one time they were culturally starved, also. Somebody had to step up, not take the easy way out and bring something they knew of to town. That's what Lacoste Trainers Womens Sale
He said the Tramps were still touring full time, but he knew he would need to think about his future career options. He started Scotty Roller Designs in 2007. And, through persistence he equated to that of the paparazzi, he also began creating posters for musicians.

He said he remembers watching his father create art out of their house as a freelance artist in Anaheim, Calif. a career path Roller also pursued and he often created flyers for bands or painted murals on buildings.
It was in the late 2000s that Roller's passions for art and music collided.
"I've had a lot of things stack up against me that I just keep trudging through," Roller said. "I've had investors gracefully decline, but I've had some banks and people give me some help. I've called in every favor from everyone I know, and I've put in every last dollar I have. I've got a lot of people helping me who want to see this open, and I have a lot of people saying 'You're out of your mind.' Both sides are totally correct."

The idea for the store came to him during a trip to Germany last fall. He said he met a European poster artist, who asked him, "Why am I not selling anything?" It struck him then if he increased his odds or provided multiple artists' work under one roof the probability of selling art would increase. He said art is subjective and sales rely on taste.
That became the basis for Rock City Posters.
Roller said the store will display hundreds of different band poster artists and offer mostly screen printed posters, but there will be some vintage and Fillmore posters and photography.

"A gig poster always hung in a dingy club with bad lighting against black walls. I want the charm of the unrefined presentation to help make these posters speak like they were intended to," Roller said. "The colors also jump out at you, and when you hear the music going on and you're looking at the artwork, it's a rock poster. It's not a piece of fine art."
