    My current project is finally having it's first gig at our guitarists friends birthday party in a small suburbs bar next saturday.

    The thing is, it ain't a private venue, and the friend is paying us only free drinks for the whole evening, so I thought maybe we could come to some agreement with the bar that they would pay us few bucks too as their customers can see the gig too.

    So I designed a small gig poster with Paint to help us, my idea being that we take care of advertising by putting these in a4-size to bulletins and stuff around the town. What do you think about the design?

    Hmmmm... It's kind of plain, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. If you have a logo, I'd do use it. If you have booking info or a website to promote, you might want to put that info on there too (maybe in small text along the bottom).

    Here's another idea: On the back of each ad, put a sampling of some of the songs you do, or list some of the bands your band covers.

    Good luck at your gig!

    Democrats won't come to Tsal anyway; after all, he is in Finland.
