I've been asked to do posters for shows that are "sold out" of all the advance tickets. But there are still some at the door the night of the show. Hanging posters that say sold out makes people feel the need to find tickets so they can be cool too.
I did a poster for them in about '93. I went to the show, it was terrible. One of their ensamble got pierced on stage, they made a big deal out of it. Oooooooo! How cutting edge. Piercing. Maybe they were far out in '86, but by '93 the schtick was tired, and the music was bad.
