The lovely piece of art was created by Mantooth Group promoter Michelle Donovan, who admits she took the most literal approach possible when creating the poster. While the message may not be super-original, the show it is advertising is a special one, since this is hardcore band Swamp Thing's first time in Arizona. They're coming all the way from Virginia and are in the midst of a national tour through July.
For a peek of what you can expect check out this video of Swamp Thing below. See a hilarious attempt of a stage dive by an audience member around the 6:00 mark and more moshing madness after 14:00.
