Post #1253 – Madalean Gauze Johnny Brendas gig poster

Madalean Gauze gig poster

I was very honored to have the opportunity to design another gig poster for Madalean Gauze – this one for her upcoming July 21 show at Johnny Brendas to celebrate the release of her excellent new EP: Cool & Fun.  The poster features my collage There Was a Fire, There Was a Flame on the front and was printed by ABNRML.

I think she’s easily one of the most talented and underrated musicians in the current crop of the Philly scene. Check out her music on bandcamp, spotify, etc. Don’t sleep on this one!
