Clutter avoidance

I recently came across this photo I took last summer (I think) of a concert poster for United State of Electronica (a.k.a. U.S.E.).

(Click image for larger view.)

I love that it ignores pretty much every concert poster convention there is. No formal list of date, location, time, bands; no attention-grabbing visual. Not to mention that it was posted on a fire hydrant, at knee level at best. Perfect for the faux covert message. A great example of using traditional media in an unconventional way.

I also love the good-natured (I’m guessing) dig at the other bands on the bill.
