Poster Of The Week: The Shapes At The Cavern Saturday
Dallas psych-rockers The Shapes, featuring Lollipop Shopper Patricia Rodriguez on bass and vocals, have finally started playing live shows again after a two-year hiatus, and will bring their '60s-loving jangle-rock to The Cavern Saturday night.
This poster for the show, which also features DJ Mark Ridlen and the live debut of A. Square, [who have a different poster, and a good one as well, here] seems to mine the same era as The Shapes. Maybe it's just me, but the way this photo of a forest is interspersed with images of tree rings and a woodgrain-paneled van reminds me of movie scenes shot in split-screen, a technique I associate with '60s movies like the Woodstock documentary. I also really love the bright yellow all over it, even though I've always thought of The Shapes as more of a black-and-white band.
Haven't heard back about who the designer is, but I'll update with the name as soon as I know.
Update: As speculated and confirmed in the comments section, the designer is The Shapes' Patricia Rodriguez.
