The concert flyer is an art onto itself, and one that I love to dabble in. Whether done by hand or digitally, whether drawn or photographed, whether stitched together with tape or glue, a good concert flyer serves an important role in both promoting the show and providing a visual aesthetic for the music, just like album cover art or music videos. Not all concert flyers are created equal; some only give basic information, while others burst off the bathroom wall with bright colors or bizarre illustrations. Check out some of my favorite flyers for various SXSW-2011 shows. How I wish I could attend some of these killer line-ups, too!
