Dichotomy / Melancholy / Vanity
This is why I do not take photographs of live bands. Because I can't.
But I had fun trying.
The Patrick Salt Ryan benefit at Fontana's.
I had a camera to my eye for five straight hours. When I saw Patrick who was on crutches, about four hours into the event, he looked into my eyes and asked me if I was high. My left eye was completely bloodshot. Eyepiece damage is not a thing I'm used to.
All for a good cause.
But man, that borrowed camera and godlike lens aspect ratio is weird...
I am available for album covers. Wait, is there any such thing as an album cover anymore?
I feel the powder burns.
Cover Star: 09/27/2010
Headlining Band: The Afghan Whigs, Bowery Ballroom, 02/20/1999. I was there too.
