OK, we're going to admit right off this week's best poster was not determined by art alone. Truth be told, for a show by our good friend Psyko Steve, who usually does some great stuff, this Kinch flier is a little disappointing.
Fact is, we know the flier isn't super fancy because Steve and a lot of other people are busting their asses to put together a great street stage on Roosevelt at First Friday tomorrow. And the record they're promoting, Kinch's new EP Collars and Sleeves (download here for free) is legitimately great. So, yes, this is just some dudes (sans bassist, interestingly) standing around -- it's the flier of the week because it's the show of the week. Be there or be square.
