A Brief Appreciation of Gig Posters

Howdy again from Nik's greasy & creepy corner of the Sourpuss blog. If there's 2 things that all of us at Sourpuss can appreciate the significance of (aside from a killer taste in fashion, naturally) - it's music & art.

Danzig // Micah Smith


...and here's a few more thrown in for good measure:
