Do gig posters still work?

There are lots of gigs and events going on. Same with promos. But they all look kinda the same, especially online.

I immediately pay more attention to the events with cool posters. If I see that a band or venue care that much about their presentation, I think they are that serious and probably the gig is worth checking out.

A gig poster has a date and a place, which makes it a nice memo for fans. It’s also cool for musicians, cos a gig poster tells the band’s story long after the event.

When I design a poster I always check how the greats do/did their stuff. I’ve attached some of my fav poster artists. My spiritual dudes. I call them “Mega Beasts”.

Btw, send me a line, if you desire a custom poster for your gig.

Fyi, just changing the post order, schedule and themes.
Ozzy Osbournes latest album “Ordinary Man” has been released today. Yey! :)
As you already know, he had to postpone his upcoming tour due to health issues. ney :(
I wish Ozzy a speedy recovery and hope he’s on stage soon.

Here is Ozzy’s music video that I like to mentally use as a reference. It was directed by Jonas Åkerlund, who produced shitloads of great mvs.

Talking about Jonas Åkerlund.
He also directed Porcelain by Moby.
I was listening to this song quite often and the same with this mv.
Might be one of the reasons why I like to put eyes in all my projects.

And talking about Moby.
It was one of the live gigs that I attended and mega enjoyed.
People wanted to see Moby so much that they jumped over the VIP fence rushed to the stage as soon as the gates opened. I was one of them.

With Bodyrock (Fire version) I discovered that you can direct a mv in "that" way.

And of course, fire, I love, fire.

Exposure! We need exposure! More people should know! oki oki!

People like moving pictures. FB knows this and pushes videos everywhere. Videos get twice more engagement on Instagram than other types of posts. You probably noticed this yourself when you see the analytics.

For sure I see it with my posts. All my motion/animation clips have more views, likes etc. Even a simple animated logo that zooms in or out has more likes than my complex hand-drawn illustration.

Actually, what got me into animation was not only traditional stuff like Akira or Fantasia but also Monty Python, Terry Gilliam and his stop motion stuff. He’s a mega beast. If you’ve seen my stuff, there’s a clear Terry influence.

Let’s just watch some animation clips from Monty Python done by Terry. Great stuff.

All this day stuff.
Just you talking to yourself.

Sometimes just need to chill a bit.

I’ve got a quote for you from Tom Waits.

“I worry about a lot of things, but I don’t worry about achievements. I worry primarily about whether there are nightclubs in Heaven.”
New Old Stuff

Netflix announced that they are making a K-Drama starring BTS (seven-member South Korean boy band).

This reminds me of time when Elvis was starring in all those movies.

We can use this:

Use your phone and with your bandmates make a low budget series for youtube.

Like a low budget porn, but music instead of sex: badly acted intro, "let me show you something", orgasm faces listening to the music.
