Poster of the Week: Built To Spill, Dinosaur Jr. and Lou Barlow And The Missingmen At The Granada Theater Thursday
Round Rock artist Todd Slater designed this week's featured poster, which promotes tonight's bill of Built To Spill, Dinosaur Jr. and Lou Barlow and the Missingmen at The Granada.
Look closely and you'll see that the ants crawling all over the woman's face; the design was inspired by the lyric to BTS's "Aisle 13," which includes the lines "One day I'll come home to find you covered with ants 'cause you're so sweet." I'd thought that was a really dark verse, implying the narrator feared he'd find his girlfriend dead, but the pretty young woman's lively eyes show Slater has a more optimistic take on the song. Check out more of his excellent work at Gig Posters.
Also, Poster of the Week has some great changes in store: Dallas Observer art director Alex Flores offered to take over the feature, beginning next week. So from now on, please send submissions to him at this special posters-only email address.
