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

This week's featured poster is for the highly anticipated Brian Jonestown Massacre show with The Flavor Crystals at Granada Theater Monday night.

Skulls and skeletons are used so frequently in all kinds of graphic design lately that you're about as likely to see them on a preteen girl's backpack today as you were to see them on a heavy metal concert tee in 1983. But in this case, the Death figure makes sense thanks to the  crowd background, an obvious nod to the tragedy for which BJM is named. So even though I've just about reached the saturation point with osteo-art, I can dig this poster (You didn't think you would get through an entire BJM-related piece without a reference to that movie, did you?).

So far I haven't been able to track down the designer, but will update as soon as I find out who did it.

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.
