Snake Oil and Whisky

Above is a poster created by Kris Johnsen for a Murder By Death tour of the East Coast. I got the chance to see this tour when they stopped through Providence. It was a great show, the floor of venue was shaking from the bass of a hardcore metal show down stairs, the walls displayed a bunch of nostalgic paintings, and the room was fairly small making it more personal. Murder By Death killed it that night by ending their set with Spring Break 1899. Kris Johnsen basically captures everything I think of when listening to Murder By Death, the mid west in the 19th century, snake oil, and excellence stories based around whiskey. The display of transparent colors makes it feel like water colors, these colors give the poster a psychedelic feel.
