yyt flyers.jpgNo, not the Expo condom, the Chinese word for flyer or poster (海报 not 海宝). I've been meaning to stick up a photo gallery of the posters for gigs at Yuyintang for ages, but I'm lazy. I've got a bunch of flyers that I've kept and most of them are online too, but do you know how long that stuff takes? Upshot is, I haven't gotten around to it.

Lucky for me then that the lovely ladies from YYT - Kaine and Sophia - are putting together a book of their best flyers. It's still early doors right now - they're choosing which ones to go for - but the plan is for it to be out before the end of the year or early 2010. The posters for the gigs at Yuyintang are consistently cool and a lot are on Kaine's blog here. Check out that link for some fantastic gig/band photos too - they make me rightfully ashamed of the crappy shots taken on my little point and shoot. You might want to check out some older artwork from Kaine here as well.

If you, like me, are quite taken by the poster art for the gigs in Shanghai, take a look at this blog by Greenwall, who designs the posters for shows at Chengdu's Little Bar. Those are well worth a butchers as well.

Incidentally, speaking of things I'm looking forward to seeing (and of the other Haibao), word is that Top Floor Circus' MV for Shanghai Welcomes You could be ready in the next week or so. Let's hope so. A bit of background to that here.
