The Murder Bros. and the Courting Harlots
The Murder Bros. are continuing their Murder Bros. and friends shows this weekend. This Saturday, we're appearing with the Courting Harlots. Very awesome.
The above photo was pilfered online. I do a lot of photo downloads when I see something for my morgue. I dug it up and love that it's simultaneously formal, violent, sexy, and artistic. The alteration and of the photo and the composition took a little work, but I like the way it turned out, and it looks deceptively simple.
This is the poster of the first Murder Bros. & Friends show. It was with Wasted Year and Pete Stallings. They are all great musicians. I got this picture from the Men's Fashion Illustrations from the Turn of the Century. It's by Kno. J. Mitchell Co. I messed with the scan a ton. And the poster had the other acts' names at the bottom of the page. I will use one more drawing from this book before I return it to the library. I trawl the library a lot for images to either inspire me or to steal. I love Old Glory in the background of this one. I like that they look like they're all carrying weapons, but look very dapper doing it. There's a story in this image that makes my imagination run a bit wild.
