Bring yerself and yer friends. This one is official! Tickets are booked. Rooms reserved. Even got a rental rig lined up for maximum overdrive all over the greater Orlando metro area. Lots of hot air from my big blowhole, all the way from Portland, Ore. Be there.

The image above is the poster for the gig, and if you know yer design history, you’ll know exactly where the thing was “inspired” by, as an homage to greatness experienced in my colorful younger years.

What brings you down to Orlando? Looking forward to your visit to the neighborhood. Hopefully I’ll be able to shake your hand, too.

Don’t know my history that well but I’m guessing that would be a nod to vintage Disney design? It is so freaking sweet I had to comment. You wouldn’t want to let us all know what font that is would ya? Or just me…

Cardboard: wow, at first I thought that was Mark Lanegan (screaming trees, qotsa), that would be pretty awesome. good stuff though.

Damn it. I’d love to hear those tall tails first hand, but im going to be tied down with a sound check at that hour…However, if you find yourself a scant fifty miles southeast in beautiful Satellite Beach, I’d be pleased to arrange a round or 3 to great design amidst the tunes of my 80’s cover band…The things we do for money…
