pushing squares

ben and i met up with a few of my good ol’ sf buddies for burritos..
then squarepusher at the mezzanine.

that i know of,
a squarepusher concert is the only place where you can hear
all genres of electronic music (and then some!) during one set.

i absolutely loved it..
but then the experimental ruckus and strobe lights
went on too long and
it soured my eardrums.
i was ready to go home.

my hands constantly shake.
i hate the intrusiveness of the flash
so images taken at clubs
usually end up being a big unidentifiable blob..
but sometimes, i like the outcome.

my two favorite photographs shot from tonight are of scott.

i didn’t want to post another concert crowd shot,
but i like how the texture in this photograph..
(taken during one of the strobe light sessions)
the people look like drawn/painted characters on the covers of
late 1970’s teenage mystery novels.

squarepusher plays the geetar.

chillits and sunset

scott and i drove four hours up north
past this dinky hick town called willits
to marinate with naked hippies and old school ravers.
i decided to leave my ghetto rigged_duct taped digital camera at home
and borrowed my dad’s old school ricoh slr.
i haven’t shot on an slr since my trip to vietnam.

the photographs were developed today
and more than half of them were blurry and over/under exposed..
*sigh* i’ve become rusty.

becca and alida.
