We trust Hoodlums to put on a damn fine event. So when we heard about the "Support Your Local Band" Poster Art Show, put together by Hoodlums and the Spraygraphic.com community, we were in, baby!
On Saturday, March 28th, we perused the walls that were filled with some stellar artwork, honoring local bands. Of course, since Spraygraphic is internet based, some of the bands "local-ness" was relative, depending on the artist's hometown. But, we spied many posters for some of the most talked about AZ bands...Black Carl, What Laura Says and Kirkwood Dellinger, to name a few.
Oh, and there were lots of people there, too. So we took pictures of them for the slideshow, of course!
"Support Your Local Band" Poster Art Show runs until the end of April at Hoodlums Music and Movies, 6434 South McClintock Dr. in Tempe, www.hoodlums.com.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
