Poster of the Week: Callupsie, Cryptacize and Florene at Kettle Art
The venue's off. The concept's not. (Jen Marlow)
We always appreciate it when visual artists and musicians collaborate, whether it’s by putting on a big event, holding a concert in a gallery or museum, or complementing live music with interesting visuals. But we don’t want to overlook the smaller ways in which visual artists and musicians work together, or the visual artwork created by the musicians themselves. That’s why we're highlighting show flyers in this weekly feature.
Local booking company Parade of Flesh had a great flyer this week, as usual, except for one small detail: the Jen Marlow-designed poster has Club Dada listed as the venue for the Callupsie, Cryptacize and Florene show even though the show has since been moved to Kettle Art.
Kettle’s Web site has an updated poster with the incorrect venue airbrushed out and their logo at the lower left corner, but it doesn’t look quite as good. Doing promotional artwork well in advance is generally a good idea, but also creates the risk of a lineup or venue change. Nonetheless, it’s a very cool drawing.
(And no, this is not a make-up choice to apologize for not choosing Parade’s poster last week. I’ve been admiring this poster even before insulting John with last week’s choice, way back when it was still accurate.) --Jesse Hughey
