Presumably put together by a member of the Bizarro Kids (this flier features similar drawing styles to the band's other fliers and logos), the poster also does a fine job of telling you a little bit about that band, which, last we checked, features a sort of patchwork, rotating collective of musicians and friends. In that regard, this poster works quite well: The stitches, the blood, the gore--it all works to tell the story of a band that is always changing and featuring different parts (a la Frankenstein).
But there's a kitsch factor at play here, too: This poster charms specifically because it isn't a high budget job--just a hand-drawn effort created in the vein of so many posters from yesteryear. Consider it proof that, in the face of a small budget, a little ingenuity can go a long way.
