Hottest. Night. EVER!!!!
To prove it, check out THE SWEAT OH MY GOD THE SWEAT!
Oh my god, the sweat.
Major, major thanks to local photog, friend of the band, and CFord fanatic Kevin O'Meara who snapped some sick pics of me playing (or sneezing, it's hard to tell) for the Wired Monk crowd in mid-May. Eat your hearts out, Vancouver!
Major thanks to my buddy John Prentice for inviting me on the show and for taking these pics! A mere two point five months later, here is photographic evidence that I was in fact in the studio.
Actually, we took a few more than two!! You (dear reader!) may recall that Katrina and I produced some great images together in the fall exploring downtown. Katrina's an up-and-coming photographer and a big music fan, and I jumped at the chance to work with her again this spring. Last week, we hit the eclectic Prophouse Cafe (a Commercial Drive standby, dont'cha know) and donned some hipster glasses to get our East Van on. Of course, halfway through the Prophouse shots, the sun came out, and we stampeded out into the first warm(ish) day of the year and caught the sun setting over the railroad tracks down by New Brighton Park.
I highly recommend a vist over to Katrina's site at http://katrinagurr.com.
Thanks to everyone for coming out to the Princeton Pub, and thanks to Dan Oswald for taking these photos. Dan played a great set, too, and you can find his music at http://danoswald.com/. See you all in a couple of weeks at the Cellar downtown!
Much belated. My good friend Skot Nelson took some great photos of a recent gig at Raw Canvas before the holidays, and I wanted to share some of those with you:
Maddest of props to Skot - you can check out all of his work at www.penguinstorm.com. The guy is actually legit cool - he's done photographs for a lot prestigious bands and it seems like he's always getting free festival passes to get in there with his camera.
Katrina is a fantastic photographer and we had a lot of fun exploring downtown Vancouver to get some great shots. I have to admit I stressed out about what to wear, what to do with my hair, whether to shave, etc. Does that make me a prima donna? Perhaps. Well, almost certainly. But the results speak for themselves. Katrina and I brainstormed on what we were trying to achieve with the photos - observation of the observer, urban misfittery, exposing something ultimately good - and I think these delivered.
