I'm a big fan of DKNG's posters (look how cool they are!), so it's kind of a no-duh that this poster should be the pick o' the week.
Send your posters, if you got 'em! I love the recommendations.
The official poster for the St. Johns Bizarre by Meg Hunt couldn't be finer. And I don't mean that in a Bizarro World sorta way.
You know how much I like it when you send me poster recommendations, right?
Kelly's Olympian always does such great posters. Take a look. This one is particularly nice! Hit me up with the individual designer if you know—while you're at it, send me recommendations for next week's Poster of the Week.
UPDATE: This and those other awesome Kelly's Olympian posters are by Brenna Sheridan of Last Broadcast Design.
Oooh, this poster by Diego Banuelos is suh-weet. Check out more of his stuff!
Thanks everybody for sending in your Poster of the Week submissions. Keep 'em coming.
Furious dead-eyed gorillas, you're won my vote for Poster of the Week. Send me a line if you know who designed this yellow pretty, or you just want to make a suggestion for next week's glorious winner.
UPDATE: It was designed by Josh Vincent of Lord. Thanks for writing in!
This flyer is by Victoria Jamieson, who is usually writing and drawing children's books, or being a really awesome roller skater (she's Winnie the Pow, who used to skate for the Break Neck Betties).
Have a recommendation for next week? Please send 'em my way!
This li'l spring number by Zack Bolotin is pretty lovely. Combine the poster with the dreamy Seattle band Lemolo (a Chinook word for "wild" or "untamed") and it evokes all those damned delicious-smelling winter Daphnes in bloom right now.
I have always liked DJ Anjali and the Incredible Kid's poster art. They do a fine job of combining bright Indian color motifs with groovy Bollywood guys and gals. Here's their latest for the last Atlas dance party at Holocene (after nine-and-a-half years!). It was designed by Tracy Harrison of Polygon Press. As the Incredible Kid so kindly noted in the comments here's a collection of Harrison's posters for the long-running night.
Got a recommendation for next week? Send it my way! (I like you.)
Oh eff yeah! This flyer by Moshburn is wicked rad for the final Green Noise Records Night at the Know. There was some hot competition for the winning poster this week—who knows how next week will shake out. Send your recommendations my way, why dontcha ya!
You can't look away, right? Like a beautiful carwreck between Weird Al's clown car and a Maserati, this poster won't leave your brain-thoughts for days.
Have a recommendation for next week? That Yankovic lady wants you to send me suggestions.
This dollop of rainbow pastels and pretty mouth drippings makes for a lovely poster featuring local drag queen Pagan Holladay. Do you have a poster you'd like to recommend for next week? This email box awaits you.
Check out this occulty cutie by Weird Beard 72 (whose website seems to be burning in the fiery depths of construction). Puh-retty sweet, right? Do you have a poster pick you'd like to see on Blogtown next week—holla!
Welcome to the one-year anniversary of Poster of the Week. What started as a friendly suggestion from Emily from the Aladdin Theater to do a weekly column is now a grand and spectacular blip on your Blogtown radar. Woo hoo. Let's celebrate with this rather Dan DeCarlo-esque poster by DJ Drew Groove (who makes some pretty awesome flyers for his gigs).
As they say in Riverdale, poster recommendations never give me the heebie jeebies. Won't you send me some?
Love the drawing on this poster for Mic Crenshaw's upcoming Africa tour.
Hit me up with recommendations for next week's poster.
I suspect this cloven-hooved poster is by the artist behind Sizzle Pie's spectacular flyers—yep, yep, it's true. Orion Landau nailed it again. Impecable postering, like always.
Do you have a beaut you want to nominate? Email me!
Finally a ray of R. Kelly sunshine in this poster-less week. The masked purveyor of hiphopera was designed by MadMax Wallace from Seattle. Anyone feel like watching Trapped in the Closet again?
Send your favorite posters my way! Taking recommendations for next week.
I'm not sure who to credit this design to, but this flyer is a mixtape of delight. I'm going home right now to dig out my mixtapes from the '90s and take a long walk(man) down memory lane.
You know who to hit up to nominate next week's Poster of the Week, right? Me.
Hot on the heels of Tuesday's Poster of the Week, I gift you a second one. This bleepy-bloopy-pixely number for Gridlords, the monthly comics reading night, is by Sera Stanton. I like.
Nominate one for next week, why dontcha ya?
Last week's Poster of the Week kinda fell off the rails, but that just means I'll give you a double dose this week! Let's kick things off with this great poster by rad comics artist Joelle Jones, with colors by Allen Passalaqua. She doesn't do gig posters often, but I wish she would!
Do you have a poster to recommend? Don't keep it to yourself!
I'm probably all up in Chris Bigalke's jock, but he makes such pretty gig posters. I searched high and low this week for a poster that impressed me more than this one for the Nutmeggers show, but no go. I think all the rad posters are lurking at Goodfoot's The Art of Musical Maintenance music poster exhibit. I'm not complaining, I like all my posters in one cozy, beer-filled place. (Look: This beaut by Dan Stiles is on sale! I like, I like.)
Now taking Poster of the Week recommendations for next week. Jump on it.
It's my favorite time of year to go to the Goodfoot! It's their annual deck-the-halls-with-music-posters show, Art of Musical Maintenance, where every little inch of the bar's walls are consumed by rock posters from 40 artists. You've never seen so many awesome posters in your live-long life. This year's nifty exhibit poster is by Furturtle (AKA Travis Bone). The show opens tomorrow and runs through January.
Make a recommendation for next week's Poster of the Week. You know you want to!
Pretty sweet, eh? I've been catting around the internet trying to find the poster designer for this, but like my own black kitteh who hides under the bed all day, it's eluding me. Shoot me an email if you know who put together this Catcation poster. Plus you can drop me a line recommending next week's Poster of the Week. Cheerio.
UPDATE: This poster, and all sparkly Gaycation posters, are by DJ Mr. Charming (AKA Mary McAllister).
Please enjoy some afternoon eye candy brought to you by the local poster creators at heyLOWEntertainment. They know how to do it right. The hotline is always open if you want to make a poster recommendation for next week.
