Up! Scumbag will be at the Melody Inn on Friday Oct 20th for their upcoming cd release bash.
I needed a good idea for a gig poster and ran with the name "Up!Scumbag". As you can imagine, it conjures up a lot of visuals and I had many options after about 5 minutes of brainstorming. The following is a look into my preliminary creative thinking:
I remembered as a kid an old gumball machine that sold jawbreakers. On the face of the machine was an image depicting a swollen eyed bully laid out by the local tough kid and a girl in the background swooning. Another bit of inspiration were the old comics for Charles Atlas with the scrawny weakling getting sand kicked in his face. The last image I remembered were the old Victorian bare knuckle fight posters where the loser would be "torn asunder".
This is the amalgamation of all three.
