This week's featured poster pimps Saturday night's lineup of Red Animal War, True Widow and The Me-Thinks at Lola's Sixth. It was designed by Ray Liberio (of the Me-Thinks) and Calvin Abucejo, collectively known as Pussyhouse Propaganda.
Sure, the grenade-toting Easter Bunny might not be very timely. But the balance between cute and psychotic is nonetheless attention-grabbing, to say the least, and I like the contrast between the reds of the grenades and his gleaming in his eyes, and the muted green of the background.
Red Animal War doesn't play out much these days, but the band is playing two shows this weekend--apparently the only two RAW shows of the summer. The band has another nice poster for its Friday night show at The Prophet Bar too, incidentally, which you can see here.
