Danny J. Gibson is a dude you need to know about.
He used to design some really cool album artwork for (mostly) local bands and concert posters (for mostly local shows). You couldn’t walk into Recycled Sounds five years ago and miss his work. He created the look of much of the indie rock scene in Kansas City and Lawrence. He work was so cool that I’d buy CDs he designed, even if I didn’t really care for the band.
Nowadays, I think he’s got something close to a real job and his output has slowed. But he still shows art the end of every year at The Brick.
At any rate, there’s no better opportunity than this show to meet the man and to see what he’s up to now. I’ll just copy and past from his e-mail:
