On Saturday we went to Three Brothers, a bar and deli in Murfreesboro, to see Rhythm Kitchen play again. This place is smoke-free, so I was able to stay throughout the whole set this time!
Skylar, the band’s lead singer, had been telling us about this other band’s poster she kept seeing around town that was hilarious, so after Rhythm Kitchen’s set, Ian, our friend Scott and I walked down to Wall Street, another bar on the Square, to see the poster for ourselves.
There we stood outside the bar, cracking up at this ridiculously awesome poster, when we noticed a dude standing outside next to us.
“You guys are really stroking my ego right now,” he said. “I made that poster.”
What luck! I told him that we had no idea who the band was but we had walked over to see the legendary poster for ourselves. I also asked him if I could get a copy of it. “I will hang this shit up in my house,” I believe were my exact words.
I gave him my email address, and what do you know: This morning it arrived in my inbox. The poster was created by Preston Pickrell, who, according to their Facebook page, is the drummer for Now the Never. Props to you, Preston, for creating an epic band poster.
Ian and I are going to try to make their August 25 show, despite hating Wall Street (really, it’s great when you’re waiting on a table at Marina’s but otherwise sucks as a bar). I’m not a huge metal fan, but I’m willing to throw a few bucks toward anyone who puts Metallica and the phrase “donkey punch” on a poster.
In case you don’t want to click through, the fine print reads:
Must be 21 and over and not dressed as a wizard from any movie that Preston deems as lame. He will not accept anyone dressed up as a damn Jedi as Jedi ARE NOT wizards. Anyone dressed up as anyone from those goddamn Harry Potter movies will get donkey punched in the face. Offer valid in all states except Alaska. Fuck Alaska!
