Candy-colored psychedelic visions invite you to Past Present Future

This was one of those occasional weeks where the second we saw this flier, we knew we had our pick. Don't get us wrong -- we still did the homework and looked at every flier we could find, online and off. And, to be honest, there were enough great fliers floating around this week to fill a typical two-month period. But none of them caught our eye quite the way this one did.

There's something about the way this flier blends a sense of '60s psychedelia, '70s style and an '80s pop-art aesthetic that's simply irresistible. That pink-and-yellow candy coloring scheme should be painful, yet here it's sublime. The cascading list of bands is a nice touch and the main info text is nicely placed out of the way.

What really makes this thing work, though, is that great image. What do you see when you turn out the lights? I can't tell you, but I know it looks something like this (as long as your dosage was right, anyway). Flowers and abstract shapes that imply musical clefs and pretty girl, oh my! Very nice. And plenty enough to earn a flier of the week nod. Nice work, 100 Feet Productions!
