Flier of the Week: Emperors of Japan

By Niki D'Andrea

This week's flier is for a show featuring Phoenix avant indie rockers Emperors of Japan and loony local rockers The Necronauts. We're not quite sure what it means -- maybe that's Satan or Ming the Merciless in the middle, and the signs along the bottom are letters from the American Sign Language alphabet. I think they spell "SAWA." Not quite sure what that means, either.
