Austin Poster Scene: Heading Pulpwards

The new trend in the hot Austin poster scene is posters which look like pulp novel covers or exploitation film posters of the same period. Here are two great examples from August, one from Spiderhouse which adverstises itself as “Spiderhouse Ballroom” in a tribute to some of the great blues and rock venues of the past, and the other from Stubbs’Barbeque which has decided to go with a very 1970s roadhouse look on their poster. This new retro look is a nice new development as an alternative to all the psychedelic revival style posters that usually dominate the scene.
