Poster of the Week: Saturday's Dallas Observer Music Awards Showcase in Deep Ellum. Duh.

C'mon, y'all. What'd you think we'd pick? Designed by our own art director, Alexander Flores, with an assist from local graphic novel illustrator, Kristian Donaldson, who drew for us this fictitious band we've calling The She-Devils behind the scenes, the poster has all the pertinent info (bands, date, time, location, even the sponsors) and represents this year's awards' loose "sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll" theme nicely.

Unfortunately, some plans fell through, and we won't have these suckers for sale at this weekend's festivities. But you can buy a print Donaldson's original, unaltered design here.

Too lame for us to pick our own poster as a winner? Fine. Check out another after the jump.

Yes, this show happened last night. But we didn't see this Parade of Flesh-commissioned designed until today. And, man, it's pretty killer. Stark and somehow academic -- which serves as a nice representation of the impressive legacies of Off!'s members -- we kind of wish we'd made it out to Sons last night, if only to get our hands on these bad boys. Not sure who designed it, but great stuff.

Think your poster is better than both of these? Want to see one of your designs get honored next week? Drop us an email with an image promoting an upcoming show right here. Oh, and, when possible, be sure to do so at least a week in advance of the show. Thanks!
