If you get the feeling you recognize the above photo of Fibs' guitarist/vocalist Preston Newberry it's because I took said photo and have since plastered it gratuitously all across Fort Worth Noise's social media platforms.

Just fyi, for your future reference and all: double foot pedal magic tricks always have a home here at FWN. 

Btw, I passed on a Bandcamp or Soundcloud embed today and opted for this kick-ass diy music vid produced by The Fibs. Gaw lee y'all(!), if you wanna take yer eyes on a visual vacay we highly rec watching the viddy yo in its entirety.     

Enough of all that, time to break this song down Dad-joke style...

The band may be called The Fibs but I ain't fibbin' when I say, "I like this song."

We're pretty set in our ways for the I Like This Song series. We never say much about the music itself besides, "I like this song."

However, in this series, we DO rather enjoy fleshing out album concepts; song and album titles, album visuals, etc., pretty much everything but the music itself.

On BP's Soundcloud page he notes that he "wrote this (album) about the end of my closest friendship."

Thought to myself, "I like where this is going." 

Then I noted the album title, "Hmm, like it again."

Then this song title stood out in an album's worth of amazing song titles.

Lastly, I finally listened to the song and the deal was sealed! 

I recommend giving the whole album a listen but given we had to choose one, I felt "My Bestie Done Left Me" set the tone for the record.  

I also thought the snail pic chosen as the album cover art meshed well with the record's theme. I mean who hasn't had a friendship that felt like it plodded along, leaving a trail of slime behind in its wake??

Now then, get me a bottle and put me on a beach ... we'll provide the message ...

Show Poster of the Week - The Dangits, The Me-Thinks, Drawer Devils at The Boiled Owl Tavern by Prewitt Scott-Jackson

Once a week FWN features a show poster from the Fort.

---

This week's featured show poster promotes a nut-punching rock show goin' down this Friday at The Boiled Owl Tavern.

To be quite frank, The Dangits plus The Me-Thinks with a splash of Drawer Devils has me concerned and wondering if the little ol' Owl can handle this much rock. Here's hoping her walls hold up. 

Show starts at 9pm, full event details posted here.

Ray Liberio & Calvin Abucejo, proprietors of local design group Pussyhouse Propaganda, are the responsible parties for crafting this delectable eye candy.

Oh, and ICYMI, we recently interviewed Liberio and his bands The Me-Thinks and Stoogeaphilia -- click here to catch yourself up.

When we reached out about this show poster Liberio told FWN that him and Abucejo are big fans of classic poster designers Ray Pettibon, Derek Hess, Frank Kozik and Jermaine Rogers.

"We just rip them off...hahahaha," Liberio joked. 

Even if you knew nothing of their influences, you can tell Liberio and Abucejo are students of the game. 

So why do we love this show poster so much? For starters, I got two words for ya: seafoam green.

The texturized seafoam green backdrop serves as the foundation of the poster's imagery. Simply stated, seafoam green = fun. It makes you think of tropical waters, which makes you think of beaches, which makes you think of smoking Caribbean ganja while holding a tiny umbrella drink in your other hand......know what I'm sayin'? 

Now that I've successfully escaped the seafoam green wormhole, let's talk about the pirate version of Inigo Montoya cruisin' down the boardwalk with a keg in tow.  

Inigo Montoya keggers are always raging!

Inigo Montoya keggers are always raging!

In simple terms, show posters encourage patrons to show up for the event in question. Given this context, who doesn't want to follow Pirate Inigo to The Boiled Owl?? If I could tie a rope to the back of his bike and skateboard hitchhike down Magnolia Ave, I'd do it in a blink.

And if you think the whole foam rock fingers / seafoam green conspiracy connection is lost on me, it most certainly is not!

Lastly, I heart the shit outta that Pump Triline font used to write out the band names. This font was hot af in the late '70s, early '80s, and the guys from PP managed to bring it back in a tasteful yet ass-kicking fashion.

I'm rather certain this won't be the last time these guys make Show Poster of the Week, but in the interim you can check out more of their work as Pussyhouse Propaganda will be exhibiting at The Collective Brewing Project throughout the month of April.

One final keg cup cheers to Liberio and Abucejo on a poster we thoroughly enjoyed.  

BUT WAIT! SUPER BONUS CONTENT: Here's a Dangits music vid to get you hype for Friday!

Today's featured song is the 2016 single release from 817 rockers Treehouse Cabaret. They score points in my book for both the band name and the song title.

Seriously, they're so good at naming things, thinking I'm gonna bring them on as a consultant to name my future children.
