Brent Frishman of Gutterth Productions created this week's featured poster, which promotes Daniel Folmer's Dead End CD release Saturday at J&J's in Denton. Should be an excellent show, with Dust Congress, Glen Farris and Sabra Laval also on the bill.
I like the strapped-down figure, the crumpled background and the typewriter font--and that it's not too cluttered. It's nice when a promoter is able to resist slapping an enormous logo on a poster; I had to look twice to even see the Gutterth moth at all. Even though it's a cool logo, a little restraint is appreciated.
As always, thanks to all who sent posters my way this week.
