Gig Poster: Decemberists, by Dan Stiles

CraneGigRecent expeditions round the web for cool posters led me to GigPosters. My favorite from there so far is this one, for a gig by a band I’ve never seen in a city I’ve never been to. The poster is by Dan Stiles (and has yet to sell out from his site).

I really must see The Decemberists one of these days. I’m currently listening to The Crane Wife. The poster, like the song cycle after which the album is named, is based on a Japanese legend, which in turn is recounted in the album’s Wikipedia entry.
