The art of the handbill/show poster is far from dead, but we’ve also seen a lot of awesome video flyers created by local artists and bands to promote shows recently.
Candy Lee made a sweet one for her CD release show a couple months ago, and Michael Anderson of 16 Drawings made some unbelievably beautiful video promos for lots of local shows before he moved to Brooklyn.
The latest local band to get in on the video-flyer act is Hosta, who just released a teaser for their upcoming album “Bearfish,” due in December of this year.
It’s only 19 seconds long, but it’s a rocking 19 seconds, complete with a track from the upcoming record, lots of bear, shark and eagle imagery, and a preview of the album artwork by Fayetteville Underground artist (and band member) Greg Moore. See for yourself.
