Standard Event Poster Size (North America)


I'm designing my first poster for a promoter for a local bar and.. well.. I don't know what size to make the poster! What is the standard size for an event poster (such as one for a band) in North America?

Is it 11" x 17" ?

I work at a local retail print shop and the "standard" sizes we have for posters are 11x17 in, 18x24 in and 24x36 in.

But posters have been printed in all sorts of combinations before and they can be cut to size. Those 3 sizes are just what the store has on display, so they are the ones that get chosen for posters most often.
