The Killers' Official Tour Dates Photograph


Per Spin, this is the band's official picture for their new tour date announcement.
I give it my vote as picture of the week. Yet another example of the band's mastermind rocking to his own tune.
Flowers' ensemble suggests that he cares to couple his own creativity with informed textile choices. I cannot say the same for the cave-echoing combinations, however.

Brandon looks the best. I don't get the outfits from the Bronze Age, however.

Brandon's a picture of androgyny. Usually it's females who look like emo guys that look androgynous to me, but Brandon's a good example of a male-informed androgynous.

It's a great picture, no doubt.
It has too many contrasts, however.
I like pictures that don't beg for too much interpretation. This feels like a Comp. Literature assignment....

What is it, 'cave power' meets Manhattan chic? :)

I like the leftmost guy. Conservative steampunk. I wish I could convince E that vests really are chic.

Right. I've always thought Brandon Flowers to be androgyny-informed. I especially thought so when we saw him live last time. By the way, Sra, he was sporting a vest then. And I agree, vests are very, very chic. Or, they can be, at least. They provide a good way of framing an outfit. I believe I once phrased that outfit as 'quietly cool.' I stand by that.
