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.
