Sometimes a gig poster is only as good as its execution — concept be damned, right? — and in this case the execution rocks and there is a fairly evident concept at work. Made from random metal fonts, the Misfits’ signature skull is literally a misfit of styles, sizes, spacing and orientations, all of it locked nicely and, most likely, quite painstakingly on a letterpress galley. The result has an energy that can only be faked so much in the computer, so it’s quite refreshing to see some physical type jumbled together in real life.
