This week's pick is a bit anticlimactic, I'll admit. We already ran the poster on Tuesday, in Daniel Rodrigue's post about the Spitfire Tumbleweeds' final (or is it???) show
. But nothing else really grabbed my attention the way this stark, subtly spooky image did. Plus, it does a good job of capturing the spirit of the Tumbleweeds
' tongue-in-cheek gothic country rock. And, as Rodrigue pointed out, it's a brawny lineup indeed, with Dove Hunter
, Brent Best
, Pinebox Serenade
, The Make Believers
, Delmore Pilcrow
and George Neal
supporting the 'Weeds at Dan's Silverleaf
in Denton Saturday.
I'm awaiting the artist's name, which I should be able to add pretty soon.
Update: "The poster was designed by H.P. Bloomer, a former student of the event's organizer Harlin Anderson," according to an email from Scott Porter.
