Getting chased by something can be fun, such as in a game of tag. It can also be terrifying--think of running away from a serial killer. But when it comes to being tailed by a gang of flying mustaches, it's sort of difficult what to think. Do you run away, just in case they have lice or haven't been washed in a few days? Or do you give in to the mustache brigade, and let their furriness envelop you in hairy delight?
The answer might depend on just why the mustaches are heading to you in the first place. In the case of this flier, they're probably just beckoning the not-so-scared-looking man to come to the 'Stache Bash at Exit 7 this Friday, September 3.
Score a $3 discount to the concert, sponsored by Motion Management, by sporting a real or fake 'stache to the shindig, which could very well start to look like the set of a 70's porn movie.
"We try to do something unique and fun to make it more than just a local concert," says Motion Management CEO and flier designer Brandon Kellum. And to capture all the facial hair madness, there will be a roaming photographer snapping shots of all the fuzzy upper lips so you can relive your mustache mayhem again and again.
Besides what's sure to be a crazy spectacle, this show is also special because it's part of the re-launch of Exit 7 as a music venue. The bar is already known for its cheap drinks, pool tables, dart machines, arcade games and jukebox.
"We want everyone to feel part of building up a cool new place for musicians and music lovers on the West Side," Kellum says.
Ladylike, Doublespeak, Resident Peasant, A Meaning to Memorize and more perform at the 21-and-older show, which starts at 7 p.m. It's $6 to get in if your face is bare. Exit 7 is at 7941 W. Glendale Ave. in Glendale, and more info on the venue may be found here.
