Flier of the Week: Box Elders at Bender's

It's all about the image. This week's flier sports a warped, neo-psychedelic visual that takes us back to the days of drawing out our drug-inspired visions on our high-school math notebooks. Except, we weren't nearly this good, and we drew a lot more dragons and shit. In any case, the guitar (or ukelele?) spewing out flowers and stars, the singing, winged amplifier and the sardonic, slightly evil sun are definitely eye-catching and groovy. Design wise, this flier is hurt a bit by the rude intrusion of the text at the bottom, but hey, I guess you gotta tell us somehow that in addition to Box Elders, we'll get the Fresh & Onlys, Pacific Pride and Bluebelle at Bender's on October 13, so we forgive you. Especially because we're still staring intently at that sun, waiting for it to melt. Click on the image for a bigger version and join us in our intense staring.
