Best Bad Concert Promotion


One would think that a band called Restraint would know how to show a little, you know, restraint. But the group's promotional poster for a July 25 album-release party at the Beaumont Club left us with that not-so-fresh feeling. The flier, which featured a photo of a woman wearing panties inscribed with "Tampax inside," implored people to "Soak up the fun with Restraint!" and offered a free box of Tampons to the first 200 women to arrive at the show. We didn't stick around to see if anyone, um, absorbed the band's promotion. We had to leave early because of our cramps.
