The Decemberists Poster

The Decemberists Poster

It took me a while to find the subtle charm of The Decemberists. It wasn’t until the tune “Leslie Anne Levine” that I grew to adore this pseudo-Irish band. I mean, if you can’t love a song about a baby that’s dead and haunting a ravine than what can you love? Yourself? Never.

Anyway, when I noticed that The Decemberists were playing two soon-to-be sold out shows at the 9:30 I knew it would be special. I was inspired by the song “The Infanta” which proclaims we must all praise the woman riding the elephant as well as the name of the tour which “The Rout of the Patagons.” And for those who don’t use Patagon in their everyday vernacular, a Patago is a mythical race of giants discovered by Magellan. I mention this so I don’t get a flood of emails and comments asking why the damn woman is so big.

Be Your Own Pet Poster

Be Your Own Pet Poster

Last year I was asked by Be Your Own Pet and Mudsugar to do a poster for their backstage show at the Black Cat. I had no clue who they were then but quickly fell in love with the songs. I did not get a chance to see them and was kicking myself for missing the show. When they toured with Sonic Youth I missed them again. Lucky me that I get to do the poster for Be Your Own Pet as they play the Black Cat next month and move up to the mainstage. My own kitty modeled for the main figure and she was quite pleased in how it turned out.

Band of Horses Poster

Band of Horses Poster

I was able to do the poster for Band of Horses and I was quite excited to have this opportunity. The music is melencholy without being whiny, atmospheric without being boring, and has a sense of humor as well which is evident with the “yee-haw” at the begining of a song. A top notch show indeed. The song “Monster” was the basis of the imagery; a confused and gentle monster killing a lowly cowboy who was trying to do him in as well.
