St. Louis Musicians' Monstrous Visages Loom Menacingly on City's Horizon

If you've been zooming down St. Louis' highways on the way home from work lately, half asleep and ready to inhale pizza before passing out on the couch in a comatose food state (what? it's been a busy week), you've probably noticed KDHX's trademark stop-sign-red logo on some brand new roadside billboards around town.

KDHX's latest ad campaign raises awareness for the public phase of its capital campaign which, with any luck, will boost funds for its in-development digs at Grand Center. The ads feature local artists involved in the three things that the community radio station seems to love best: music (of course), beer and kicking ass.

The billboards occupy stretches of highways I-55, I-44, I-64, I-70, and I-170 and feature black and white portraits of local stalwarts in support of the station. Please -- for the love of dogs -- do your best to not crash your car while on the lookout for these likenesses. And, as always, feel free to contribute to keeping KDHX alive anytime by donating online at ForKDHX.org. Alternatively, feel free to follow the directions of other billboards in town by downing some quarter pounders, lifting some weights and trying not to puke.

Comments from @STEFANfuckingHESTER have been removed for having little -- if anything -- to do with this post and for being borderline libelous. Please play nice, people.

These are great. I'd love to see the ads on buses and trains too.

@STEFANfuckingHESTER Well, I'm not Jay's wife, and I've called the photography (and campaign, in general) "amazing" in about eight different statuses and posts on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and G+. Because, you know, they kind of *are* amazing.


Hey, wait, why am I not getting any action out of this? Wow, that Jay really IS a self-serving douchebag! Wait until I tell Mrs. F.
