This pretty much kicks total ass. I'm a bit of a closet Springsteen fan.
It still, after all these years makes me cringe anytime somebody comments on "the type" on posters.
it's just flat out fucking retarded. FUCK THE TYPE! It's a damn rock poster for a rock and roll show. Rock is inherently "against the rules" so fuck you and your complaints about the type.
I would love this is that was set in a more classic typeface, like Franklin Gothic.
Its really great and simple, but that type is really distracting. Especially since the text seems to be tacked on on a bit lighter blue field than the rest.
