PULP - week one

I guess one reason I haven't really had the urge to blog lately because of all of the Twittering (or tweeting as it's properly called) and updating of my Facebook status I've been doing lately.
Something in particular that's been keeping me busy has been the preparation for an electronic music weekly that my friends (Tyler, Katie, and Peter) and I are throwing in downtown Monterey called Pulp, which is every Thursday this month at The Hippodrome (formerly Club Octane). It took me forever to complete the 5" x 7" flyer design, and by the time I finally did complete it, I was asked to put together an 11" x 17" poster as well (with all of the information from the back of the flyer).

This is the front and back of the 5" x 7" flyer...

... and here's the 11" x 17" poster.

It was kinda tricky trying to figure out how to cram all of that information onto the back of the 5 x 7 flyer and the front of the 11 x 17 poster without making it too cluttered and busy. I think I did alright... Whaddaya guys think?

But yeah, this past Thursday was our opening night, and I think I can confidently say that the night was a success. Initially, we all kinda had the mindset that, like, "Ya know, it doesn't matter if there's a smaller turnout than we hope... This will be a learning experience for us..." To our pleasant surprise however, people kept showing up and filling the room! And they all kept dancing til the place closed!

I haven't had time to go through all of the photos, but here are a couple from the night.

I didn't realize just how awesome the view was from this room (the Skyy Room)! I'm pretty glad that we scored this room rather than the smaller (and darker) room on the opposite side of the club!

Anywho, I gotta run some errands, but I'll try to have the rest of the pics up soon!
