Not the best photo, but here's the poster for the St. Louis show.
The clouds and all of the pinks and purples are sparkly:

Yay. Thanks.

Like metallic paint? Or like you do in kindergarten with glue and sparkles? lol

No idea on the artist name, eh?

Why are the guys surrounded by kangaroos in that first poster? That MIGHT make sense if they were on tour in Australia...

Yes yes, metallic paint! It looks really cool in person.

As far as the artist, here's the signature. No idea what it says.

Most of the ones I've seen have a stamp on the back. Seems a wasted opportunity not putting a website, or something, on there.

It's a little feminine, but I quite like it. Very homemade look to it. Like there's some story behind it.

Can't wait to see what Portland's poster is. Lotta great artists out there.

I've just been sorting through my pictures of the Toronto Conchords gig, and realised that I never posted the picture I snapped of the poster for the first night:


Image


Absolutely flipping hideous, right? AND they got the date wrong, AND they had Kristen Schaal's name on there instead of Eugene Mirman. But I could forgive those goofs if it weren't quite so vile a poster. I mean, it actively offends me. Does it remind anyone else of the Nazi insignia of the Third Reich? Because I find the iconographic similarity frankly disturbing:


Image


I mean, seriously. Who thought this was a good idea?

No word yet on what the poster for the second night looks like. The people in the know at Massey Hall said it would be on sale on their website in a few weeks, so I'm keeping an eye out. I'll let you know when they offer it up, just in case it's a goodie. Fingers crossed, eh? :D

Oooh! Turnip! A collector's item! I heard they only sold 28 posters before realising the date and opening act was wrong and pulled them! And to have them stuff up the second night too? Sheesh!

Toronto looks like a Captain America comic to me (but also nazi). Neo-Nazi Captain America, originally from NZ.

Blimey, that is awful. Dare I be so bold as to say I actually thinks its shite. A bad choice for a poster alas.

And the Chicago ones are really not my style either. TBH I've not seen many on this tour that are my kind of artwork, at least that I'd want on my wall somewhere.

I do like they are doing different posters for each venue and obviously limited numbers so as to make them collectable, but I've seen maybe 3 or 4 I'd actually part with cash for. The rest I'm pretty indifferent to.

Poster for both Milwaukee shows:

Notice what Bret is feeding to the Unicorn. This may be my favorite of the posters I've seen. I can't wait to get this framed.

Oh, I forgot to mention that it has the artist's name on it. Diana Sudyka.

I have an extra Milwaukee poster that I am willing to sell or trade for another tour poster. Please send me a PM if interested.
