Art: Dog Is Blue Play Massey Hall?

Dog Is Blue and Anna Atkinson at Massey Hall by Tom YeoYou heard it here first, folks: Dog Is Blue and Anna Atkinson are live at Massey Hall on July 1st (ahem…year to be determined). Sure, we haven’t actually spoken to anyone at Massey Hall about this (or even Anna for that matter), but a band can dream, right?

Our good friend and amazing artist, Tom Yeo, created this poster (along with a ton of other excellent images we’ll be sharing with you eventually) to test out some print methods he’s working with. This one in particular has also been selected as part of a juried show of concert posters at The Robert McLaughlin Gallery in Oshawa. The show opens on Friday, May 4 and you can read all the details here.

You really should see the 15″ x 19″ poster in person though, as my poorly taken photo doesn’t do it justice at all (I love the little ghosts coming out of our instruments!). Needless to say, we’re rooting for Tom to win the jury’s vote—He’s the Andy Warhol to our Velvet Underground!

Besides, with no year on the poster there’s still a chance we can use this at a real show at Massey Hall with Anna Atkinson down the road. How does 2022 sound?

UPDATE: Tom’s poster won second prize in the juried show! Awesome!
