Once a week FWN features a show poster from the Fort.
This week we drum up attention to the above eerie poster for a show taking place at Lola's featuring a hell of a lineup in Pinkish Black, Wire Nest, and Programme. Jon Teague of Pinkish Black designed this beauty himself.
If you can manage, I'm gonna wax philosophical a bit about the infectious nature of this piercing design...
Human ears without context are strange-looking, right? Like, ears attached to a head; cool, I can dig it. But ears on their own? Strange-looking to say the least. If this poster design doesn't gain your attention I'm not sure what will.
And that's the express purpose of gig posters, right? They want your eyes.
In this case, it took a pair and a half of ears to win over my eyes; I find myself unable to stop looking at these beautifully displaced ears.
Anyways, this show right hear gonna be a killer time at Lola's. Hope I didn't muff this post, we still best buds?
about the word writer person:
Prewitt Scott-Jackson writes Dad poetry & short fiction when he's not hyping and typing for Fort Worth Noise. His writing can be found in Ghost City Press (New York), Five 2 One Magazine (Los Angeles), Prairie Schooner (University of Nebraska Press) and Sick Lit Magazine (Texas), among others. He prefers short walks on the beach because – and I quote – “It’s really hard to walk on sand.”
