Flier of the Week: The Sweet Repose

Nothing says eye-catching, understated awesomeness like this flier does.

Tommy Miller, frontman of the Sweet Repose, designed the flier, which he actually created with PowerPoint in order to keep the design simple.

"I wanted to spell the band's name in an upside down human pyramid," Tommy said. "It ended up looking like a Christmas tree due to the amount of letters. I came across the naked acrobat ladies font and I thought it was perfect for the design I was working on."

The Sweet Repose is touring in support of their debut album, Lay Your Axe to Rest.

The solid lineup includes The Sweet Repose, Tugboat, Race You There, Milo the Mayor, and the Ghost of 505. Considering there are so many bands to see, there are also a lot of band members who insist that you should be there for the show.

Tucson band the Ghost of 505's bassist, Steven Massani, said the show is definitely worth coming to. "It will be a fun atmosphere, even on a Sunday. Milo and The Ghost can rock your face off, and Tugboat has catchy melodies that will keep you humming for days," Massani said.

The Ghost's drummer, Steven Yanez Romo, is excited to play with Tugboat and is looking forward to a night of great musicianship. "It's our second time in Scottsdale. We had a great time in August, and we hope to make this show even better," Romo said.

Don't miss out on an evening of alternative music! It's a 21+ gig. Good times will begin at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $5, and more info can be found here. In the meantime, give a listen to the Sweet Repose performing their song "All We Have to Live."
