Flier of the Week: Strange Young Things
Bass player Adam Gross of Strange Young Things managed to pull together a great flier that looks casual yet celebratory in honor of his bandmate Corey's birthday.
"I wanted to make the poster embody that spirit," Gross said. "I always associate bright colored text and confetti-like imagery with birthdays. I felt this image, which includes a bunch of broken records that almost appear like confetti, along with the text in bright green, blue, and pink/purple symbolized a birthday celebration."
The show will be the sixth annual Glodie's Birthday Bash. Strange Young Things takes pride in the celebration, calling it "one of the best shows we play." Corey Glodie is lucky to have so much great local talent at the event to help him get his party going. Joining Strange Young Things will be Black Carl, Dry River Yacht Club, Tramps and Thieves, and Elizabeth Rose.
"[The show is] always with bands that are an amazing and eclectic mix that really represent the Valley's music scene," Gross explained. "This year we have some of the best in town to help us continue the tradition."
Here's the scoop: the showdown starts at 9 p.m. at the Yucca Tap Room. It's a 21-and-over gig. The best part of the show is that it's free! More information can be found here.
