Monday, August 3 at the 8th Street Taproom in Lawrence brings the latest in Chomp Womp's series of Family Night concerts. These shows always fall on a Monday, come exceptionally cheap (in this case, three bucks), and present four bands worth checking out. Taking a risk on bands is much easier and likely when you don't have to part with much of your hard-earned cash, no?
Chomp Womp is a collective that puts on shows, makes art, makes music, and generally presents music that might be considered "crazy-ass" from time to time. Bands in the collective include Baby Birds Don't Drink Milk and Weird Wounds, amongst others.
As to why this got flier of the week distinction this go-around: I'm usually not that into fliers that use the whole cut-and-paste aesthetic, but the fact that Drew and company used bits of map, hand lettering, and some crazy surf imagery to create something that POPS so well is fantastic. The black and white background makes the colors (especially in "Chomp Womp") just burst off the page. I know it's not cheap, but more bands need to use color copies more often.
