Poster of the Week: Strange Boys, The Coathangers and Bad Sports At The Lounge On Elm Street Friday

This weekend is chock-full of great shows, which has lead to a glut of great posters. Ever since back in May, when I first saw this Sam Heimer flyer for the July 10 Parade of Flesh Lounge on Elm Street show featuring The Strange Boys, The Coathangers and Bad Sports, I knew I'd want to feature it on DC9. What I didn't know at the time was how many other cool flyers would pop up between then and now. After the jump are a few other great posters.

Right away, it struck me as a fantastic example of Heimer's distinctive surrealistic, nightmarish style. The similarities between humans and apes and monkeys can make our simian cousins appear cute or uncanny; here, the mob of spectators to this execution falls squarely in the latter category.

The version above is taken from Heimer's blog (where you can see an even higher-resolution version), and looks a bit different from another version floating around on the Web, as it has a creme-colored background rather than white.

And, by the way, if you're interested in the show, DC9 just might be able to get you in for free--which will save you a few bucks you could put toward a print of the poster. Check back with us in the morning...
