Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

This week's featured poster spiffs the Friday Aftertraces show at the Prophet Bar with Legacy Fails, The Room Sounds, Book of Sounds and Kirk Thurmond.

Clay Hervey, drummer for Dallas indie/alt-rock band Aftertraces, designed this one. I like how the coloring of the overlapping figures blends together  and into the warm background. Even though all-caps usually bothers me, the lettering here looks good without sacrificing readability.

Despite the Aftertraces' prominence in this flyer, the Prophet Bar calendar actually lists the touring Legacy Fails as the headliner. Well, if the guys in Legacy Fails want their band name to be the biggest, then they can make their own stinking poster.

Thanks to all who submitted posters, and my apologies to anyone whose artwork I missed; I've been away from the office for a couple days, and had to schedule this post in advance. Keep the recommendations coming, though. I'll be sure to look at them all next week.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
